International and National Annual Celebrations
The Catholic Church annually gives us numerous opportunities to celebration vocations. Three of these annual events include: National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW), World Day for Consecrated Life (WDCL), and World Day of Prayer for Vocations (WDP).

The NCCV had annually published user-friendly planning kits to help parishes, schools, dioceses, and religious congregations celebrate these events. The USA Council of Serra International will continue to provide the kits are developed to coincide with the Liturgical Calendar and Year. See below for a full descriptions of National Vocation Awareness Week, World Day of Prayer for Vocations, and World Day for Consecrated Life and download information.

We encourage Serra clubs to assist their parishes and Catholic schools in celebrating these annual vocation events. The USA Council of Serra International Vocations Committee is able to prepare and provide the planning kits to dioceses, parishes, schools, religious congregations, and Serra clubs at no cost through a generous grant from the Bishop Britt Vocation Fund. Should you want to insure our ability to continue this program at no cost please consider a gift to the Bishop Britt Vocation Fund. For more information please contact the USA Council of Serra International 1-888-777-6681 or email.  Available late October.
