is an interdisciplinary society "join(ed) in fellowship in order to serve Jesus Christ better by helping one another in
our work and by putting our abilities more fully at the service of the Catholic
faith" (F.C.S. Statement of Purpose). It's members aim to
"wholeheartedly accept and support the renewal of the Church of Christ undertaken by Pope John XXIII, shaped by Vatican II,
and carried on by succeeding pontiffs."

administration, or operation of the Fellowship and in the pursuit of
its goals and purposes.
