Daily Prayer

February 16, 2017

Good morning, Padres. Please stop what you are doing and prepare yourselves for prayer. Please silence yourselves now.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Lord God, in today’s Gospel reading you ask us . . .

You ask us who do we think you are
Let us not deflect or dodge this question

You asked your disciples and followers, but let us not forget the question also pertains to us

For it us, who fail to understand that your words are the spirit and life

That you are the source of everlasting life

Let us not fill our desires with things that are fleeting or vain, but let us remember who you are and to stay centered on you.

Let us come to you daily in prayer and joy
Let our spirit never grow tired
Let us never forget you as the source of our life
Teach us to come back to you over and over again

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit Amen.

Welcome to Faith & Service

At Serra, students experience spirituality and service in their daily lives—within and beyond the classroom. Our Campus Ministry program is at the heart of the school. Students plan liturgies and take part in reflective experiences such as the junior/senior Kairos retreat, which has a lifelong impact.

Serra provides a superior education that is grounded in the Catholic faith. Students don’t just learn about spirituality and service—they live it. Students deepen their spirituality not only in their theology classes, but across all program areas. By planning and participating in liturgies and prayer services, our Padres grow in their understanding of the Gospel.

Our service-learning program helps students to put their faith into action by making a difference in their local communities, nationally, and around the world. As each Serra student gives of himself in his own way, each graduating class performs tens of thousands of hours of Christian service. Serra Padres find daily opportunities to explore their faith.

At Serra, we educate the whole person—heart, mind, body and soul. Today’s teenagers are bombarded with conflicting messages about human dignity and moral values. The Serra High School community offers students a vision of faith, hope, love, mercy and justice. Based on Christ's example of servant leadership, we have committed ourselves to serving the students, faculty, and staff of the Serra community with our whole hearts.
