Finding Your Fiat

Finding Your Fiat is a young women's ministry at St. Philomena open to girls in junior high and meets after school.  The mission of this ministry is to build up our Christian sisterhood, discover the art of living, be inspired by the lives of the Saints and to have time for authentic conversations.

Finding Your Fiat’s name comes from Mary’s “yes” to God as a young teenage girl that changed the course of history for all nations. Inspired by her courage to participate in God’s plan, we too look for the opportunities to say “yes” to the Lord each day as we love Him and our neighborhood. 

Each gathering begins with music and an activity, a lively conversation with our scripture reading, virtue and saint, dinner and a hands-on project. In the past we learned how to make rosaries, embroider designs, the art of handwriting and baking. 

Meeting dates during the 2022-23 school year are: September 14, October 12, November 9, February 8, March 8, April 19.

If you have questions contact Jenny Witt at jwitt@stphils.com or 309-682-8642.

Advent by Candlelight

The first Friday of Advent we hold an Advent by Candlelight event for parish women. Advent by Candlelight is an opportunity for women to set aside the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, and focus their hearts and minds on Christ. Enjoy a night of food, friendship, music, and time to reflect on the Advent season. Below are links to videos from our Advent by Candlelight speakers and/or entertainers. Watch the parish communications in October and November for details.

St. Joseph FertilityCare

St. Joseph FertilityCare practitioners teach young women and engaged and married couples how to chart the female reproductive cycles with the use of the Creighton Model System.

This method of charting equips women to be advocates of their health and to see the beauty of God’s design of the body. Married couples can use this knowledge to assist in the conception or to temporarily or permanently avoid pregnancy. In addition, the charting system allows for the collaboration with OB/GYN doctors and nurse practitioners for the management of fertility disorders and diseases such as hormone dysfunction, ovarian cyst, polycystic ovarian syndrome, abnormal bleeding, miscarriage, infertility, and pain.
