Daily Prayer

Monday, November 20, 2017

Good morning, Padres. Please stop what you are doing and gather yourselves for prayer. Let us silence ourselves now.

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

God of all blessings
Source of all life
Giver of all grace

We thank you for the gift of life:
for the breath, that sustains life
for the food, of this earth that nurtures life
for the love, of family and friends

We thank you for setting us in communities:
for families, who nurture our becoming
for friends, who love us by choice
for companions at work, who share our burdens and daily tasks
for strangers, who welcome us into their midst
for people from other lands, who call us to grow in understanding

We thank you for this day:
for life and one more day to love
for opportunity and one more day to work for justice and peace
for neighbors and one more person to love
and by whom be loved, for your grace
and one more experience of your presence
for your promise: to be with us, to be our God, and to give salvation

For these, and all blessings, we give you thanks

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.
