Serra Council of Thailand

Serra Clubs in Thailand

Serra clubs in Thailand are well-known to all priests and Religious congregations in the country. Their activities are recognized, support and cooperation are incredibly tremendous from the Bishops, priests, religious and chaplains.
Serra in Thailand was celebrated its 25th anniversary during 63rd SI Convention in Bangkok on 25 June 2005. Like in other parts of the world, we have faced both progrees and drawbacks in the recent years. The progress lies in the fact that the Serra has been extended to every archdiocese/diocese in Thailand and most new clubs are performing admirably. The drawbacks is that some senior club are not as active as they were at the beginning of their formation. This can be seen in many phenomena: many older members have faded away and the club meeting attendance is at low percentages, the qualities of the programs are not so well-planned and some old activities are disappearing with hardly any new activities being introduced. Futhermore, the areas or club membership retention and extension still need to be more actively developed.

What do Serrans do?

To promote vocations, Serrans pray that God grant vocations and help men and women respond to the call. While not a fundraising organization, Serrans make gifts to the archbishop to assist in the education of seminarians, small gifts to priests, sisters, and seminarians as tokens of appreciation. While not a service organization, Serrans help out when they can. For example, several Serrans assisted with the archdiocesan Quo Vadis Days. Serrans also host events to honor seminarians, priests, and sisters, and to hear speakers on a variety of subjects of interest.
