Padre Serra Parish is proud to charter a Boy Scout Troop and support three Girl Scouts units.
Boy Scout Troop #257

Girl Scouts offers the best leadership development experience for girls in the world - one designed with, by, and for girls. The possibilities in Girl Scouts are unlimited...
In the greater Camarillo area, there are about 600 girls from Kindergarten to Grade 12 involved in over 50 troops. Each troop has its own meeting times and activities but also participates with other local troops in events (see Micasa Service Unit website at www.micasagirlscouts.com). We are part of the California Central Coast council stretching from Simi Valley through Santa Cruz (www.girlscoutsccc.org ), the national USA organization (www.girlscouts.org ), and the international World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouting (www.wagggs.org ).
This is a wonderful, low-cost parent/daughter activity (yes, dads are girl scouts too!) building memories and results that last a lifetime. Please call or text me; I would love to meet you and discuss the benefits of scouting further.

Thank You from Angel Tags!
Sincere gratitude to everyone who helped make our Christmas Gift Share a success. We supplied gifts to 1200 kids & adults this year.
Appreciation to all the Confirmation candidates and volunteers who helped sort & bag the gifts and to those who delivered the gifts to Fillmore, Piru, and RAIN.
But most of all, thanks to everyone who took their time & resources to selflessly give gifts to these kids & adults who wouldn’t have a Christmas without your help. Merry Christmas!
Every year, you can help over 1,100 children and adults have a special Christmas morning!
Select a tag from the trees in church, buy at least one of the items listed, wrap it, and attach the ANGEL TAG firmly to the outside of the package.
This year we are collecting gifts for RAIN, OASIS, Ventura County Youth Correctional Facility, St. Francis Parish in Fillmore, San Salvador Mission in Piru, and Immaculate Conception Parish in New Cuyama .
This event is for children enrolled in the parish faith formation program grades 1 - 5, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, grandparents...your whole family!

Chorus Caritas in Concert
Our mission is to create beautiful choral music and to support charities who do the work of disciples - caring for "the least of these."
Sunday, August 18
Coming in September
Catechetical Sunday is a day set aside to recognize the vocation and ministry of teaching and sharing the faith with others. A wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each baptized person plays in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel.
On this day catechists throughout the diocese, and country, are commissioned and dedicate themselves to their vocation of teaching the faith to the children, teens and adults of our parish community.
The catechists of our parish, wonderful men and
women who answered YES to the call to be present and walk the faith journey with the adults, youth and children of the parish, are called forth to receive a blessing and be formally commissioned to continue the beautiful labor of sharing and growing in the faith.
To all catechists in our lives, parents and grandparents, priests and deacons, religious sisters, church family, all who have been encounters of Jesus in our lives, we thank you!
Also visit: Children, Youth, Adults, RCIA
This event is canceled until further notice.

There are occasional solo opportunities and one of the most important missions of CMSC is to form young people in music ministry - the idea that rather than a mere performance what the choir does at the liturgy is to lead the singing of the assembly, and to enable their own and everyone's sung prayer. Additionally, when the choir sings by itself at the liturgy, the purpose is to help everyone there who hears the music, including the singers themselves, to encounter Jesus. We are trying to teach all participants in all the choirs that it is a ministry of service to God's people and to the liturgy, and that worship "in spirit and in truth" is what we are aiming for.
To join CMSC, schedule a Vocal Checkup with our Children's Choir Director, Kathleen MacAller.
