We did a lot. Come and See. We prayed for, supported and affirmed vocations to the priesthood and religious life. It is not an occasion of pride. It is our humble offering to God of our work for His Church. Let us pray for even more effective work for His Church in 2017!
We plan is to have the Roster alphabetized in rows on a separate page that can be reached from the Membership page. You can get a peek at what the page might look like here. Let us know if you don't like your picture or the caption.
Serra Roster photos in print will be in black and white and in color on the web. We are about 1/3 of the way to our goal, with about 50 photos of KCK Serrans.
We need each one of you! If we haven't gotten your photo please come early to any of our Wednesday meetings to have your photo taken.
This is a wonderful event year after year as this photo from 2015 suggests. This year's Parent/Seminarian Mass and Luncheon will be at Ascension Parish on December 29, 2016, so plan to come.
Advent is a season of waiting but the waiting is a “doing wait”, so says this Maryknoll priest, Fr. William Grimm, MM. We are the main actor in this “doing wait”, seeing how our lives will play out when we are called home by God.

Resorces for Advent Reflection
Advent begins on November 27, 2016 and, as always, making a good preparation during Advent leads to a holy and happy Christmas. Initially we thought to do this weekly but now each day in Advent we hope to offer reflections on the Advent season that may help in making your Advent more fruitful.
