Serra is comprised of groups of Catholic lay people who join together
in the life of the Church. One purpose is to foster vocations to
the priesthood and the religious life. Another equally important
purpose is to help each member grow in his or her faith. Each club
strives to become a "university of Christian principles,"
contributing to the education and spiritual growth of its members.
As Serrans work together and get to know each other, a special fellowship
Membership of Serra is open to any adult Catholic who is willing to embrace
the five elements of Serra. We are Catholic
men and women of all ages from all walks of life ... businesspersons,
homemakers, lawyers, teachers, farmers, retirees. All share a deep
faith, desiring action.
The Serra Club of Canberra gained its Charter on 15th April 1978. The Club undertakes a range of activities towards
its goals. The club meets monthly for Mass and a dinner meeting.
At most meetings a speaker or a panel presents a subject of interest
and challenge to Catholics. Serrans foster each others' spiritual
growth through prayer, spiritual reading, shared Eucharist and discussions
at club meetings.
