Dear Brother and Sister Serrans,


If you have been waiting for an extra-special convention to attend, this is the one.


Nothing short of a pilgrimage to the birthplace of our faith, Serra's 75th international convention brings you all the excellent speakers and presentations you expect, but in Rome we are honored to bring you the opportunity of a lifetime: a private audience with His Holiness Pope Francis.


Our Hotel


Our venue in Rome is the Ergife Palace Hotel. This four-star hotel is in a quiet neighborhood about 15 minutes by car to downtown Rome and about 10 minutes west of the Vatican.

Ergife Palace offers a light-filled, modern design and Olympic-size swimming pool, Wi-Fi and broadband Internet in the rooms. The convention hotel rate is €110.00 per night for a single occupancy room and €130 per night for a double occupancy room. This rate includes daily breakfast buffet. Make your own room reservations by emailing the hotel with “Serra International Congress” in the subject line of the email. In the email itself, provide the names of those who will be staying at the hotel, their arrival and departure dates, and any special requests for your hotel room.  The hotel will contact you to confirm your reservation.


UPDATE: The Serra room blocks at the Ergife and the Smooth Hotel, are filled as of May 9, 2017.


At our second overflow location,  Raganelli Hotel,  a handful of rooms are still available but from June 22 onward only. 


Our third overflow hotel, the Parco Tirreno, is a bit farther from the Ergife than the other two, but shuttle buses will be provided between the main convention center and the other hotels. 



Audience with the Holy Father


As a testament to the outstanding work of our Italian Serrans as well as a sign that Serra International is ever more recognized for its essential vocations apostolate, all convention attendees are invited to be present for a private audience with the Holy Father after Mass at Saint Peter's Basilica in Vatican City on Friday morning, June 23.
