The four Serra Clubs in the Philadelphia region sponsored a reception and dinner Thursday, Oct. 23 at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary to raise funds for vocations awareness programs in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
The sole purpose of Serra is the promotion of religious vocations, and the participating clubs were Philadelphia Serra Club, Del-Chester Serra Club, Central Delaware County Serra Club and Northeast Philadelphia Serra Club.
Proceeds from the event will aid a new program for college-age young men to discern a possible calling to the priesthood. It will be similar to the successful Quo Vadis Retreat Program last summer that saw 101 teens aged 13-18 attending a summer three-day camp for fun and discernment at the Black Rock Retreat Center in Quarryville, Lancaster County, according to Father Stephen DeLacy, director of the archdiocesan Vocation Office for Diocesan Priesthood.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
