The text of that re- port follow, s. Tonight on this occasion of the First Annual Bishop's Night we are establishing the prece- dent of reporting to you the ac- tivities and the progress of the six Serra Clubs of the Rockford Diocese. Each club president has submitted to me a report on their club, and what you are about to hear is a condensation of these reports. In giving this report I will generalize as to sight for all those participating. I might add that the Serra club of Rock River Valley is particu- larly indebted to you for saying the Mass on the occasion of the A 1 t a r Boy and Fathers pro- gram. In addition to these activities the clubs of Freeport and Rock River Valley arranged trips to a seminary for groups of ,their altar boys. Speakers Bureau The next activity that h a s become more prominent in the last year is the formation of the speakers bureau and a training program for them. An example of this activity is depicted in programs conducted along plan- ned series lines that have been presented by the various Serra clubs throughout the year, Understanding a n d Acting with the Mind of the Church. An Explanation of the Con- Fraternity of Christian D o c- Holy Priesthod and Religious Life. Spiritual Activities Now to the spiritual activity of Serrans.

Lastly, on a most joyful note, it is my pleasure to report that the call from the Great High Priest has come to Sons and daughters of S e r r a families during the past year. Three daughters have joined the re- ligious communities and three boys have entered into training to stud), for the Holy Priest- hood.
