“Walk with Saint Junipero Serra as he traces our Lord’s footsteps in search of workers for the vineyard.”

A Franciscan missionary Saint Junipero Serra is well known as the 18th century founder of a string of California missions. Like Saint Serra, the Serrans of today put faith into action. Whether through meetings, vocational programs, or personal involvement in school, parish and diocesan activities, Serrans accept the challenge of fostering vocations and encouraging spiritual growth.

Let St. Serra inspire us to nurture vocations and become missionaries ourselves as we work for vocations. The USA Council Program Committee invites you to carry out this program of renewal by which all Serrans recommit themselves to furthering Serra International’s principles and objectives.

If you want to know more about our patron, please read the in-depth article, “Missionary Disciple: The Spirituality of Saint Junipero Serra” by Father Joseph Chinnici, OFM, historian and President Emeritus of the Franciscan School of Theology at Oceanside, CA (pictured at left). It was first published in the June 2017 issue of The Serran Magazine.
