What Is Serra Meets?

Serra Meets is a monthly series of virtual lectures from leading clergy and experts on the topic of Catholic vocations, designed to inspire you and keep you connected to our mission as much of our ministry moves online.

Patterned after regular Serra meetings, these presentations open and close with prayer and feature notable speaker(s), followed by a Serra business topic. They are a wonderful opportunity for Serrans across the United States to come together during these pandemic times.  Serra Meets sessions are recorded and available for viewing and download on our YouTube channel. We encourage Serra clubs to use these videos for virtual or in-person meeting programming, followed by discussion.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to keep up-to-date on all Serra programming.

Serra Meets is organized and hosted by the US Council of Serra International.
