START A FIDELIS CHAPTER
Obtain pastor support.
Before contacting us to set up Fidelis at your parish, make sure you have pastor support. It is vital that each Fidelis chapter is backed by a parish both ministerially and financially. If you need resources to share with your pastor, please fill out a contact form or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Build a volunteer base.
Thriving Fidelis chapters are supported by committed volunteers, including women of all ages in the parish. Volunteers must commit to preparing for weekly chapter meetings by reading the lessons and resources sent by Fidelis and praying for their sisters. We understand that conflicts may arise with weekly Fidelis nights, but we ask that volunteers plan on attending all scheduled Fidelis nights.
Helpful Hint: Reach out to mothers of all boys! They often love volunteering with Fidelis to get extra girl time in during the week.
Whether you set up a monthly donation or make a one-time gift,
your contribution makes a lasting impact.
You can designate the first part of your monthly gift for your local Fraternus or Fidelis Chapter. These monthly gifts will be reserved to provide financial aid for a boy or girl to attend a week of Summer Ranch/Inspire with their Chapter. Young people in your community will have the chance to experience a life changing week of Ranch/Inspire that would not be possible without your help.
The second part of your gift will reach even further. Your gift not only helps the young people in your local community, but it will help start new chapters and train mentors in unreached communities.
Note: If you don’t have a local chapter, your gift will automatically be designated to help start new Chapters.
These young women play a key role in the young Church. As they participate in Fidelis, they grow in virtue and faith, which shapes them as individuals and allows them to face the future with confidence in God. They are the next generation of saints, and your contribution helps them on their faith journey. That is a gift with limitless value.
