The Serra Club of San Diego North Coast welcomes you and invites you to learn about our mission and our ministry.
Our vision is to have all people respond to God's call to their religious vocation. We as part of Serra International and under the aegis of the Bishop of the Diocese of San Diego are dedicated to fostering vocations to the religious life of the Roman Catholic Church, encouraging the clergy and religious in their vocations, and enriching the spiritual and social life of members and their families.
The Serra Club of San Diego - North Coast was established June 4, 1991 under the aegis of the Bishop of the Diocese of San Diego and is a part of Serra International.
Serra USA was formed in 1935. It happened when a small group of lay people in Seattle decided to form an organization to promote and foster vocations to the priesthood and consecrated religious life. As a result, they chose Father Junipero Serra, the great missionary, as their patron and named the organization SERRA Club of Seattle.
Serra International is a global organization of lay Catholic men and women whose objectives are:
- To foster and promote vocations to the ministerial priesthood in the Catholic Church as a particular vocation.
- To serve and support priests in their sacred ministry.
- To encourage and affirm vocations to consecrated religious life in the Catholic Church.
- To assist its members to recognize and respond in their own lives to God's call to holiness in Jesus Christ and through the Holy Spirit.
