The Serra Club of Saginaw
Established June 20, 1951
What is Serra?
Serra International is a global association of over 19,000 individuals in thirty-
six countries.  

On May 3, 1951, Serra International was made part of the “Pontifical Work for
Priestly Vocations within the Sacred Congregation for Seminaries and
University Studies.”

The USA\Canada Council was approved and formed in 1994. In 2000, Serra
International approved and formed the Serra Council of Canada and USA
Council each adopted the an organizational structure similar to Serra
International. The USA Council adopted the geographical regional boundaries
parallel to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Today there are more than 11,000 Serrans in over 300 Serra Clubs in the
United States. The primary purpose of the USA Council is to assist and
promote the local Serra club.

To accomplish this purpose and respond to the unique vocational needs of
the Church in the United States the USA Council of Serra International
adopted a structure and vision to support vocations.
