About FIAT

FIAT Camp is a great opportunity to explore your vocation, grow in prayer and friendship, and learn more about religious life!

FIAT Camp is five days and four nights at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, growing in faith, prayer and friendship. The mornings include Mass and talks, the afternoons are sports and recreation, and evening events are a mix of spiritual and fun. There is also a pilgrimage to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes.

The camp is for rising 9-12 graders.

Here's what some past participants had to say about their experience at FIAT:

  • “I enjoyed getting to meet the sisters and seeing that they can still be fun and awesome and be themselves while dedicating their lives to Christ.”

  • “I enjoyed the connection with God, above all. The feeling of being surrounded by people who support you in your faith and having fun with them was so amazing. It was something I didn’t realize I wanted until now.”
