Welcome to the activities page for our web site! We appreciate
your interest in Serra and invite everyone to take the opportunity to learn
more about Serra and its activities. We hope you will also explore the related links to
Serra International and Serra International USA/Canada Council to learn more about Serra on both the International and National levels.
The focus of the Serra Club of Richmond is the fostering of vocations to the religious life in the Catholic Church. In helping to promote vocations to religious life, and in affirming our priests, sisters, brothers, deacons, and lay ministers, we hope that those called will continue to find in their vocation a fulfilling way of life.
As Serrans, we are involved in a variety of activities that help promote and foster vocations to the religious life within the Catholic Diocese of Richmond; Prayer Pledge Card Programs that encourage daily prayer for church vocations, the Thirty One Club that encourages members to choose one day of the month to attend Mass and offer it for vocations, Annual Charter Night that is set aside to honor our priests and religious for their dedicated service to their vocation, Vocation Awareness Programs for those who may be interested in pursuing a religious vocation, as well as Seminarian Support programs to help affirm and support seminarians during their studies for the priesthood.
Pope John Paul II has asked Serrans throughout the world to be the "Vocation Arm of the Church."; and I believe participation in this effort is vital to insure the future of our Church and the development of its religious and lay leaders. If you are interested in obtaining further information regarding membership, please feel free to contact William Timberman, Vice President of Membership, or Jerry Mullen, Trustee of The Serra Club of Richmond.
Thank you for visiting our web site and taking the time to learn more about Serra and its activities. Please keep religious vocations in your thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
