Serra clubs are known worldwide for their efforts to foster and affirm Catholic vocations to the ministerial priesthood and vowed religious life. Serrans value not only their work, but also the sense of community they receive from knowing that they are not alone in their dedication to the men and women who have dedicated their life in ministry and service to our Church.
By joining Serra International, you officially become part of what Pope John Paul II dubbed “the lay vocation arm of the church.” With more than 700 clubs in 40 countries, the Serrans are likely to be just next door.
This 35-minute recorded webinar is designed to be viewed by members new to Serra within the last three years, and is accompanied by a printable support document.
Because the session is recorded, there is no live interaction with the presenter. For that reason, it is strongly recommended that new members view this with at least one club officer present so that the specifics of how their club operates can be identified and discussed.
This guide is intended primarily for the club vice president for membership and other members of the membership club extension committee. It also will be helpful to other club officers, district governors and members of a district extension team. This manual is also an important reference for anyone involved in the formation and organization of new Serra clubs.

This Quick Start Manual should be used along with the current “Organizing and Chartering a New Serra Club Manual” which can be found right above this one.
