Agenda & Minutes Archive

Our Mission ...

... is to foster and affirm vocations to the priesthood and vowed religious life.


Our Name …  Saint Junipero Serra

A Franciscan missionary Saint Junipero Serra is well known as the 18th century founder of a string of California missions. Like Saint Serra, the Serrans of today put faith into action. Whether through meetings, vocational programs, or personal involvement in school, parish and diocesan activities, Serrans accept the challenge of fostering vocations and encouraging spiritual growth.
