Daily Prayer

Thursday December 12, 2019

 Good morning, Padres. Please stop what you are doing and prepare yourselves for prayer, on this the twelfth day of Advent and the Feast Day of Our Lady Of Guadalupe. We pray today in the spirit of Our Lady’s appearance to Saint Juan Diego, speaking to him in his native language, affirming his identity and inspiring him to be a voice of hope for his people by spreading the good news of Christ, who was born for all people without exception. Please silence yourselves now. 

 
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
 
As we remember the story of Juan Diego
We pray to you Lord that our good deeds don’t go unnoticed. 
May our service to you Lord speak louder than the words we proclaim. 
So we pray to you God for your guidance for all
Especially those who are sick and have no place to go this Advent season.
 
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
 

Today's Prayer composed by Nico Button '21. The Introduction adapted from the Santa Clara Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley.

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.
