About fidelis

Fidelis is an organization of Catholic women working to ensure young girls are encouraged and guided in their pursuit of authentic Catholic femininity. By working within parishes nationwide to create an environment of sisterhood and mentorship among women of all ages, Fidelis has quickly grown nationwide. Fidelis was born out of a desire to complement Fraternus, a thriving likeminded program tailored to develop young boys.

The primary focus is on the formation of girls into virtuous disciples of Christ by facilitating weekly discussions, seasonal outings, and annual trips around the phrase paratum cor meum Deusmy heart is ready, oh God!

Not only does Fidelis encourage young girls to pursue Catholic femininity through personal prayer, participation in the sacraments, and parish involvement, but they show them what it means to be a virtuous Catholic woman through the sharing of personal experiences and mentorship. Additionally, Fidelis hosts seasonal retreats, including its annual INSPIRE retreat, which attracts young women nationwide for a week of prayer, friendship, and adventure to give women a sense of closeness to their Creator and to reinforce the universality of their faith, bringing together girls from all areas of the country.

Fidelis has been positioning young girls to deepen their femininity for more than a decade, and today is active in 17 parishes from Washington State to Florida. Fidelis is seeking to increase it is presence in parishes, improve its resources and retreats, and grow its national fundraising staff.
