Turnabout is fair play, and delicious
On the first Friday of most months, Serra Club of Spokane joins seminarians for Mass at Bishop White Seminary. The first Friday of May, however, was followed by a special event: the staff of Bishop White Seminary prepared breakfast for Serra Club members as a way of saying thank you for the support given this year to the seminary. Serra Club is dedicated to the promotion and support of vocations and to the spiritual growth of its members. The Club welcomes Catholic men and women as guests or as new members.
