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.
Help us to be faithful to your call
Faithful in the midst of distractions
Faithful in the midst of temptation
Faithful in the midst of doubt
Help us to have hope in your promises
Hopeful for your kingdom
Hopeful for you love
Hopeful for your return
Help us to love you and others
Love when we are angry
Love when we are tired
Love when it's the last thing we want to do.
We pray for all these things
And we ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Today's prayer COmposed by Serra Faculty
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.
