The mission of the Serra Council is to promote and foster vocations to the priesthood and consecrated religious life. Each year, they sponsor an essay contest for 8th graders. This year’s writing prompt was:
In your vocation, married, single, or religious, choose one corporal and one spiritual work of mercy. Explain how each will help you in your chosen vocation.
Each year, Saint John School 8th graders participate in the contest. This year’s winners were presented with certificates at the Monday morning assembly by Mr. Jim Smith, Serra representative from Saint John parish and by the secretary of the local Serra chapter.
Congratulations to our 8th Grade Serra Essay winners:

8E – 1st place – Ainsley C.; 2nd place – Savanna H.
