Parish Life

The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.


Divine Diners

St. Serra Divine Diners is a ministry that kicked-off in April 2017.  Twice a year, parishioners sign up to participate as Divine Diners and are randomly placed into a group that gets together for a meal at a member’s home or a restaurant, several times during the sea-son. Groups meet one time per month with the focus being to meet and get to know more of, and more about your fellow St. Serra pa-rishioners, experience community worship (pre-meal prayer and scripture readings), and have a great social interaction with fabulous food and conversation. Diners sign-up into two categories, one for families, and one for adults. Sign-ups for the next session is in August. More information to follow.  Maureen Kubli or (661) 722-3901
