From tea drinking to bracelet making, Fiat is a young women’s ministry club at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington that emphasizes the importance of a Christ-centered community. Fiat comes from the Latin word for “let it be done,” which was Mary’s response to the Angel Gabriel when asked to become the mother of Jesus. This complete acceptance of the will of God is exactly the message the club strives to embody, and being females only, the club allows young women to come together and grow their faith through conversation, prayer and Scripture.
