Serra International Needs You!


Deadline: Nov 30, 2022


Serra is looking for capable, dedicated leadership. As our vocations apostolate continues to grow globally and to take on an increasingly significant role in vocation pastoral action across the universal Church, Serra’s nominating committee want to choose the best candidates for service on Serra’s International's Board of Trustees. If you know someone in your Serra Club or district who is willing and able to serve as an international officer or trustee, your encouragement may be what he or she needs to step forward. All Serra Clubs, district governors, and district governors-elect are asked to recommend qualified candidates for Serra’s international board of trustees.
