Dear Serra Alumni,

It's Homecoming Week at Serra, featuring our Homecoming BBQ and football game on Friday night and our Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner on Saturday.  Both events will be held on campus.  

In the event of rain on Friday, our gym will be set up with food and drinks, and a live broadcast of the football game will be shown on two screens.  

Food and entrance to the game against St. Ignatius are both free for alumni. There are still a few tickets available for the Hall of Fame Dinner, honoring five of our alumni. I hope to see you on campus!
