Serra clubs are known worldwide for their efforts to foster and affirm Catholic vocations to the ministerial priesthood and vowed religious life. Serrans value not only their work, but also the sense of community they receive from knowing that they are not alone in their dedication to the men and women who have dedicated their life in ministry and service to our Church.
School chaplain, Fr. Patrick Russell, commended both Kilcullin and Huber for their excellent work on their respective essays.
"It is really exciting that two of the six winners of this award come from St. Dominic High School," Father Russell said. "Reagan and Kevin represent the outstanding character of our student body. The faith is alive here."
