Faith In Action Together (FIAT)
Building Futures Together through
Faith & Academic Excellence
Dear STM Catholic Community,
FIAT is an STM Catholic School parent ministry that encourages parents and students to grow closer to Jesus Christ and His Church. Our mission is to come together as one – students, parents, staff, clergy, and parish – living out our Earthly Mission with the support and love of one another. FIAT is the word that changed the world! It is Latin for “Let it be done”. In modeling Mary’s FIAT or “yes” to God, our ministry strives to foster parents and students in growing closer to God.
FIAT is striving to cultivate a strong faith-filled community through ACTION.
Please feel free to reach out to Jan Ahern at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303.877.6229 or Angela Haubert at email@example.com or 720.429.2434 if you are interested in joining FIAT or if you are in need of our help!
Yours in service for Christ,
The FIAT Committee
FIAT Event Planning Committee
Participate in planning events such as Advent by Candlelight, Lenten preparation, Theology on Tap and cross promoting parish events to our school parents. Meetings are one Friday of each month after drop off (usually first Friday but not always). Attendance is not required at all of the meetings to be a part of the planning committee.
Advent by Candlelight (AbC)
Each year, FIAT hosts an extraordinary evening of food, music and fellowship. We hear from an inspirational speaker who helps us focus on the prayerful time of Advent. This event regularly draws over 200 people and is offered free to STM Catholic parents as well as parishioners.
Parents in Prayer
Become a prayer warrior! FIAT invites you to pray for our community every Tuesday at 2:30pm by the main school entrance near the Blessed Mother statue. Come to school a little early to have a truly spiritual impact. You can park in the Padre or Church lot or leave your car in carline. This is a beautiful way to prayerfully support your children, school and church.
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20
Angels Among Us – A Help & Caring Ministry
Brings hope to our community in times of need. Are you in need of any of the following services? Eucharist at your home, meals, carpool, babysitting, etc. Please contact your child’s teacher so we can come together as a community and support one another. Have time to make a meal or serve your fellow families? Please email FIAT@stthomasmore.org.
Lenten Journey…Footsteps to Jesus
Come deepen your faith as we prepare for Pre-Lent and Lent to Easter as a community. Throughout the Lenten season we will provide stimulating speakers, ways to participate in meaningful and impactful charity projects and learn how to practice prayer, fasting and alms-giving.
Mardi Gras Social! It wouldn’t be Lent without a Mardi Gras party!
Join the FIAT Ministry and Be the Change You Want to See in the World!
