Our Threefold Mission
To promote and affirm vocations
while growing in holiness
Promote and Support Priestly Vocations
Serrans ardently promote vocations to the ministerial priesthood. We recognize the Catholic priesthood as a sacred calling that is essential for our faith, and we stand alongside our priests, offering unwavering support in their ministry.
Encourage and Promote Vocations to the Religious Life
Serra is dedicated to encouraging and promoting vocations to the consecrated life within the Catholic Church. We recognize the profound beauty and transformative witness of Religious Sisters and Brothers, and we strive to inspire and nurture those who hear this divine calling.
Answer the Call to Holiness
Serrans embark on a personal journey of responding to God’s call to holiness in Jesus Christ, guided by the Holy Spirit. We support one another in this sacred pursuit, fostering an environment where each member can thrive as they grow closer to the Father.
Join Our Mission
