Daily Prayer

March 29, 2017

Good morning, Padres. Please stop what you are doing and prepare yourselves for prayer as we continue our Social Justice Project during this time of lent. Please silence yourselves now.

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

Great God, there are so many who need our help;
Let us also remember that we need your help.

Give us the strength today to tend to our wounds,
But also give us the strength to tend to the wounds of others.

I know that You will come to help those who are unable to help themselves;
And that they will be blessed in the coming kingdom;
Lord help us to bless them now;
Be with us as we help others.

Oh Lord,
We look forward to the day when there will be no more pain;
No more suffering, no more death, and no more hunger.

Speed that day my God;
For we long for you kingdom;
For all of us who are hungry and lost;
Let the Word of God bring us everlasting life.


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.
