Daily Prayer

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Good morning, Padres. Please stop what you are doing and gather yourselves for prayer. Today we keep in our prayers all those affected by the earthquake Mexico and the minority communities fleeing persecution in Myanmar. Let us silence ourselves now.

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

Loving God, you call all people to walk in the footsteps of Jesus in order to make your presence felt in our world.

I have heard your call and want to respond with all my heart: “Here I am, Lord. I come to do you will.”

Help me to know myself and recognize the gifts and talents with which you’ve blessed me. Help me to seek the path in life that will best honor the person I am and make use of my gifts and talents to build your Kingdom here on earth.

This I ask in the name of the Father who gave me life, in the name of Jesus who lives in me and in the name of the Spirit who impels me to live for others.

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

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.
