“Now more than ever, we need the Lord to raise up an army to strengthen His Church and spread the Gospel. The prayer, fasting, and service you do as Serrans,
for the sake of vocations is essential to this work.”

— Most Rev. Andrew H. Cozzens, STD, DD, outgoing Episcopal Adviser for Serra’s USA Council, Jan. 30, 2019

Jesus’ commission to the twelve,
is a directive to us all…

Then Jesus approached and said to them,
“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit…
Matthew 28:18-19


Pray for, encourage, and affirm all those in the Archdiocese of Omaha called by God to serve the Catholic Church in ordained or consecrated life.


Foster and promote vocations to the Catholic priesthood and consecrated religious life while assisting our members in recognizing and responding to God’s call in our own lives.


To support our vision and mission, we collaborate with like-minded Catholic organizations in the Archdiocese of Omaha and our world.


The Vatican recognizes
Serra International as the only global lay apostolate for vocations in the Catholic Church.

In 1941, Pope Pius XII created the
Pontificium Opus Vocationum Sacerdotalium…

…to encourage and coordinate efforts to promote vocations to the sacred priesthood of the Catholic Church.  Serra International was aggregated to this work in 1951.  Aggregation reflects not only specific support from the Vatican for our mission, but also confers special spiritual benefits on all Serrans.

Read His Holiness Pope Francis’ address to Serrans at their private audience with him during the Serra International Convention in Rome.
