Seminary to honor Greater Bay Area Serra Clubs at Sept. 19 gala

August 28, 2015

St. Patrick’s Seminary & University, founded in 1898, will host its annual gala Sept. 19 on the seminary grounds in Menlo Park.

Every year the seminary community honors a person or group that has loved St. Patrick’s and supported its mission. In anticipation of Blessed Junipero Serra’s upcoming canonization, the community will honor The Greater Bay Area Serra Clubs: San Francisco, San Jose and West Contra Costa County. The Serra Club mission, closely aligned with the work of its namesake, is to foster and affirm vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

Serra International, a global lay apostolate for vocations in the Catholic Church, was founded in Seattle in 1935. Today, Serra Clubs include more than 20,000 members in 800 clubs in 40 countries. In the United States alone, there are 9,000 members in 260 clubs.

The seminary gala begins with vespers at 5 p.m. in the main chapel, followed by tours of the seminary, appetizers and cocktails. The evening continues with a catered dinner under the stars by Continental Caterers. There will be an award presentation followed by a raffle prize of $25,000 or a Lexus Is250. The evening concludes with the “Salve Regina” sung by the seminarians.

All proceeds raised will go toward the formation of our next generation of priests.
