Welcome to St. Serra Club (of West Phoenix) for Support of Vocations to the Religious Life

 Serra International  is formally recognized by the Holy See as the global lay apostolate for vocations in the Catholic Church.

Serra is a voluntary association of some 20,000 Catholic laymen and laywomen called Serrans.

Each Serran is a member of a local Serra Club sanctioned by the Ordinary of the diocese in which the Serra Club is located.
Since it was founded in 1935, in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A., Serra has chartered 1,109 Serra Clubs in 46 countries on six continents.
Serra's objectives and purposes are:

  1. To foster and promote vocations to the ministerial priesthood in the Catholic Church as a particular vocation to service, and to support priests in their sacred ministry
  2. To encourage and affirm vocations to consecrated religious life in the Catholic Church
  3. To assist its members to recognize and respond in their own lives to God's call to holiness in Jesus Christ and through the Holy Spirit.
  4. Everyone is welcome to join and may cantact Kevin Rodriguez: kevinarinaz@gmail.com or email at: www.westvalleyserra.org

Join Us and Help build up the body of our Church one Prayer at a time...

BEHIND AND BEFORE EVERY VOCATION to the priesthood or the consecrated life there is always the strong and intense prayer of someone: a grandmother, a grandfather, a mother, a father, a community...This is why Jesus said: " Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest," that is, God the Father, "to send out laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38).

 


 

Our Mission

WELCOME TO WEST VALLEY SERRA CLUB NEWSLETTER:  As members of the lay vocation arm of the Church, our primary mission is to foster and affirm vocations to the ministerial priesthood and vowed religious life. Our secondary mission is, by working and praying together, to encourage our personal spiritual growth. It is an opportunity for lay Catholics to further their faith, and an invitation to those who may be considering the religious life to counsel with us and participate in our programs in fellowship. Our patron is Saint  Fr. Junipero Serra, the 18th century Franciscan missionary to Mexico and California, who founded many of the missions. Pope Francis canonized Junipero Serra on September 23, 2015 to sainthood; Junipero Serra is now Saint Junipero Serra.
