Supporting Those Who are Called to Religious Life

Does it concern you that many young men and women called to priesthood and religious life are not supported enough? Have you ever wondered what you can do to promote and support vocations in our Diocese? Is our Lord calling you to foster vocations in your local parish through prayer and apostolic works?

Serra International numbers over 23,000 members worldwide, this organization, comprised mostly of married and single lay men and women, exists primarily to foster and promote vocations to the priesthood and consecrated religious life, as well as to assist its members to grow in a greater understanding, and public witness of our Catholic faith. Prayerfully consider becoming a member of this wonderful organization and encourage members of your parish, whom you think might be interested, to do the same.
