Good morning, Padres. Please stop what you are doing and gather yourselves for prayer. Today's prayer was recited at the all-school assembly with speaker Bryan Stow. Let us silence ourselves now.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus asks the disciples the famous question “Who do you say that I am” and Peter responds by saying “You are the Christ, the son of the living God.”
And so we pray...
Lord, with this in mind, help us find our own to answer to Jesus’ questions. After we know who you are, it will help us better understand how we are all made in your own likeness.
Also guide us to be just like Peter in today’s Gospel and accept our calling no matter what that may be.
God, use us all as another rock to build your church on just as you did with Peter so that we may help other see your light.
We pray this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, 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.
