Daily Prayer

Thursday February 21, 2019

 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 sow our faith today O Lord,
Your seed of faith in this fertile world
We may be sown perishable,
We may be sown broken
Surrendered or without joy
Weak among mortals
 
Lord help us not to count the cost of this love today
If our witness is laughable to all but the saints
Who will laugh with joy, who will come out
Singing and bewildered

Let us be seeds sown with this life receiving us
So that we may blossom forth,
Our song uncontained,
Our strength ungrasped.

Sow us, Holy One,
A seed of you,
Sinking into the ground,
As mercy breaks all known
And unknown bounds.  
 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirt.  Amen.

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.
