Many thanks to the following companies who donated to our parish picnic vegetable centerpieces: Boskovich Farm (cilantro), Houweling’s Group (tomatoes), Oro Del Norte (avocados and lemons) and Smart and Final (jalapeños).
Thanks to these folks for helping: Our Confirmation candidates, volunteers, Knights of Columbus, and Establos.

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."

We are fortunate to have many kids enrolled already. Although spaces are still available, please register right away to get your preferred day and time. Registration Packets available in the parish office or download them at Children or Youth.
Thank you for your generous support of our 2019 troop pancake breakfast fundraiser!
Every year our parish Boy Scout Troop 257 hosts a pancake breakfast complete with raffle baskets and silent auction items! The menu includes pancakes, sausage, fruit, juice, milk and coffee. Proceeds help the Scouts pay for summer camp, other activities, and Scouting gear. Thank you!

“O God, to those who have hunger, give bread, And to us who have bread, give the hunger for justice.”
-Latin American prayer
Every March our parish joins with other Camarillo churches and neighbors from different faiths, cultures and ages, to stand against hunger in our local community and the world.
The reason we walk is because “they walk”. Hungry people in developing countries typically walk as much as six miles a day to get food, water, and fuel and to take their goods to market. We walk to be in solidarity with their struggle for existence. Together we raise awareness and funds.
The funds raised will fight hunger around the world and our local food pantries: St. Mary Magdalen/Padre Serra Christian Service Program, Christians Acting Together, Food Share, St. Columba’s Episcopal Food Pantry, Seventh Day Adventist Church Food Pantry, Many Meals and RAIN.
A Message from CROP Walk
"Every year, Church World Service tallies a list of the Top 100 fundraising teams for CROP Hunger Walks, a group that we call the CREAM of the CROP. With over 900 walks and thousands of teams, we’re very happy to tell you that Padre Serra is a CREAM of the CROP team for your participation in the Camarillo CROP Hunger Walk!"
Way to go team!
