God's Call Heard through Our Club
I have been a Serran 8 years. I have met 150 men from Wyandotte and Johnson County that I would not have met if I had not joined the Serra Club of Kansas City in Kansas. These are holy and spiritual men.
These men have encouraged me to be holy and spiritual. They encourage me by their actions of attending daily Mass, retreats, volunteering, participating in events and gatherings. They did not say verbally to me that I ought to participate in such spiritual events, no, their actions said it to me. They say it to me each time we meet for the Serra Luncheons by their attendance; I see by their attendance their spiritual life without any words spoken.
When I was encouraged to join this Serra Club I became aware of our objective and purpose—foster and promote vocations to the priesthood by prayer, communicating with seminarians, visiting them, providing financial support to them but no mention of increasing my spiritual life. Yes, I realize our purpose but in the last several years I have realized the influence these men have had on my spiritual life by their actions. Because of you I believe my spiritual life has become better. Yes, one of our objectives is to assist its members to recognize and respond in their own lives to God’s call to holiness in Jesus Christ.
May we all influence each other and our new members to recognize and respond in their own lives to God’s call to holiness in Jesus Christ.
