About Us

Members of Serra are lay Catholic men and women of all ages and backgrounds who ensure the future of our Church by creating a “culture of vocations.”

Their mission is three-fold: 

  1. Promote and support vocations to the ministerial priesthood of the Catholic Church as a particular vocation of service and support priests in their sacred ministry;

  2. Encourage and promote vocations to the consecrated life in the Catholic Church;

  3. Assist members to recognize and respond, each in his own life, to God’s call to holiness in Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit.

 

Pontifical Work For Vocations:

Serra International is the only lay organization aggregated to a primary pontifical work. A pontifical work is an organization instituted by the Vatican to advance a particular goal of the Catholic Church. In 1941, Pope Pius XII created the Pontificium Opus Vocationum Sacerdotalium (The Pontifical Work for Priestly Vocations) to encourage and coordinate efforts to promote vocations to the sacred priesthood of the Catholic Church. Aggregation, or affiliation, to this pontifical work reflects not only specific support from the Vatican for our mission, but also confers special spiritual benefits on all Serrans.  From the booklet "Pope Pius XII and Serra International":
