Serra Club ministry focuses on promoting vocations to the ministerial priesthood and religious life.

We know that men and women of all ages are seeking the opportunity to serve God and their neighbor. Serrans, through their prayers and vocation activities, invite these men and women to explore their call to service in the Church.

As he was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers,
Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew,
casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen.
He said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men."
At once they left their nets and followed him.
~ Matthew 4:18-20

Is God Calling You?

Join other Catholic men and women who want to know. The Vocation Awareness Program offers a discernment weekend each year to help single Catholic men and women, ages 18-40, find answers to questions they may have about life as a Priest, Sister, Brother, or Consecrated Lay Woman.

How do we discover our true calling? We discover it through the process of "discernment."

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,
Saint Junípero Serra and all the saints,
an increase of 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.

Vocations Prayer Used in Some Local Parishes

O God, you so loved the world
that in the fullness of time
you sent your only Son, Jesus,
to be our Savior.
We now ask you, the Master of the Harvest,
to send workers into the harvest
for the harvest is great but the workers are few.
Bless the vineyard of the world
with priests and religious
who will teach in your Son's name,
walk in His footsteps
and break bread in His memory.
-- Rev. Mark Link, SJ
