Good morning, Padres. Please stop what you are doing and gather yourselves for prayer, on this the 12th day of advent and this one of our final prayers for this semester. Please silence yourselves now.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
You call to yourself all who labor and are burdened
You offer them rest
Lord help us to hear your call this season
Help us to wait for your call during advent
Help us to direct our labor towards you
All our ends, direct them to you
And towards the advancement of your kingdom
As we prepare for finals
Help us also to see the burdens of others this season
The burdens of the sick, the poor
and the souls of the departed
Help us to bring healing to the sick
And comfort to the poor
And let us keep in memory the souls of our dearly departed
Let us pray for them fervently as they pass through to your
presence and protection
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirt. 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.
