Finding Your Fiat

Finding Your Fiat is a young women's ministry at St. Philomena Parish open to girls in junior high and high school, meeting at separate times typically four or five times a year.  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. 

view more

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. Last year we learned how to make rosaries, embroider designs, the art of handwriting and baking. 

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

St. Philomena FertilityCare

Fertility Care St.Philomena Fertility Care practioners teach young women and engaged and married couples how to chart the female reproductive cycles with the use of the Creighton Model System.

view more

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.

Set an appointment by email to meet with Jenny Witt (jwitt@stphils.com) or Erin Myers (erinmyer@stphils.com) to get started, or fill out the form below and someone will follow up with you.

I'm interested in speaking to someone about Fertility Care.
