Each spring the Serra Club of Duluth hosts a social with the Sisters, where we enjoy coffee and pie and pleasant conversation. The Serra Club is an international organization whose mission is to encourage and support vocations to ministry in the Catholic Church. It was named after Saint Junipero Serra, a Franciscan priest who founded many missions in California in the 18th century.
This year the social was held on the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Sister Beverly Raway welcomed everyone to our Monastery, and Father John Petrich, Serra Chaplain, led us in prayer.
Thank you to all the wonderful Serrans for the vital work you do in supporting vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life, and in bringing some joy into our lives. You are in our prayers.
