The Watertown Area Serra Club mission is to foster and promote vocations to the ministerial priesthood and to support and affirm priests and deacons through prayer, encouragement, and awareness. We also encourage and affirm vocations to consecrated religious life; in addition, our club assists its members in recognizing and responding to God’s call to holiness in our own lives.
Although held at Immaculate Conception Parish, Serra Club is open to all Catholics. Parishioners are welcome to take part in this beautiful opportunity to pray for vocations and join in a short program which provides an opportunity for educational and spiritual growth.
Meals of Wheels
Meals are delivered to home bound throughout Watertown, and Immaculate Conception participates in this ministry on a rotating basis. Once every six weeks we are called on to provide shuttle service for meals. It takes approximately 30 minutes a day for one week. The rewards of getting to know, and sharing fellowship with, those in our community who may not be able to get out anymore are priceless. If you would like to share in this ministry please call the parish office.
