Fiat: Faith In Action Tasks


Fiat: Faith In Action Tasks

Fiat is a Latin word meaning, “let it be done.” Catholics use this word referring to Mary’s “yes” to God at the Annunciation.

“Let it be done unto me, according to your word.” (Luke 1:38)

Like the Blessed Mother, we have opportunities in our own lives to say “yes” to God. For our Confirmation program, a Fiat is any way you want to say “yes” to Him, in your personal relationship with Him. Maybe you want to serve others, pray a certain way, participate in parish activities, or attend Junior High Ministry events.You’ll find a list of suggestions below. Simply remember these rules:

  1. You need to complete seven Fiats before Confirmation on May 4.
  2. At least one Fiat should be completed with your Confirmation Sponsor
  3. All seven Fiats should be different; don’t submit repeated activities without prior permission.
  4. Fiats must be submitted online, using the Fiat submission form.
