Serra Club Meetings

Serra International

Serra International is an organization of practicing Catholic men and women, representing various ages, races, and backgrounds. They have joined together to foster vocations to the priesthood, deaconate and religious life, and to further Catholicism through fulfillment of their own Christian vocations to service.

The Club's name is taken from Blessed Junipero Serra, an 18th century Spanish Franciscan priest who spearheaded the evangelization of California. From one club, established in Seattle, Washington, by a group of four laymen in 1935, the Serra movement has grown to more than 600 clubs in 32 countries with a combined membership of over 20,700 persons. Spiritual growth, Christian fellowship and continuing education in the Catholic faith accompany member's efforts on behalf of vocation awareness and affirmation.

The Serra Clubs listed below have made this website possible and are committed to the work of the Church. Pope John Paul II has asked all Serrans throughout the world to be the "Vocation Arm of the Church." Your participation in this effort is vital to insure the future of our Church and the development of its religious and lay leaders.

Serran Prayer for Vocations
O God, Who wills not the death of a sinner, but rather that he be converted and live, grant we beseech You through the intercession of the Blessed Mary ever Virgin, Saint Joseph, her spouse, Blessed Junipero Serra and all the saints, an increase in laborers for Your Church, fellow laborers with Christ to spend and consume themselves for souls, through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.
