USA Council of Serra International

The United States is divided into 14 regions established by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and adopted by the National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors.

Today, there are over 13,000 Serrans in 326 Serra Clubs in the United States.

Our Goals

Serrans' special work is to foster vocations to the priesthood and religious life:

  • By offering affirmation to those who already serve the church
  • By encouraging new church vocations through prayer, education, and collaboration with their bishops and church vocation offices
  • By striving to become a university of christian principles that responds to Pope John Paul's challenge to "prove it possible to live the Sermon on the Mount with all the radicalism it entails"

Our Mission

The Serra Clubs of the Galveston-Houston (Texas) Diocese have been recognized by the Archdiocese as the conduit between the Vocation Office and the individual parishes.

Membership Eligibility

Anyone who is Catholic, and wishes to join the Bay Area Serra Club is eligible for membership. You may use email to have someone contact you if you wish to join, or require more information. Be sure to include your telephone number and the best time to call.


Meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at Mary Queen Church, 606 Cedarwood, Friendswood. Officers' meetings are held on the second Thursdays. Changes are noted in the yearly schedule. Click here for driving directions and a map.
