TORONTO JUNE 2021 CONVENTION POSTPONED; 

SERRANS TO MEET IN CHICAGO, OCT. 7-10, 2021

REGISTER FOR THE CHICAGO 2021 CONVENTION HERE.

As the world works to manage and control the pandemic affecting international travel, and in the interest of health safety of our Serrans all over the globe, the Serra International Board made the decision to postpone the Toronto June 2021 convention until next year.

However, as we expect most parts of the Serra world to be in a better position in terms of Covid-19 vaccinations and a decline in infection rates this Fall, we have scheduled a streamlined Serra International Convention experience in Chicago on October 7-10, 2021! The convention officially kicks off with the opening Mass at 5 pm on Thursday, Oct. 7, and concludes with the Travelers Mass at 8 am on Sunday, Oct. 10.

Note: This schedule may be subject to change.

 

RESERVE YOUR ROOM AT THE PALMER HOUSE HILTON

Serra International has reserved a block of rooms at the historic and beautiful Palmer House Hilton hotel, at the unbelievable rate of $149 per night. Founded in 1871, the Palmer House is the longest-operating hotel in North America and a designated Chicago landmark.

The Palmer House is close to multiple Chicago world-class attractions, including the Art Institute, the Field Museum, and the Shedd Aquarium. It's also surrounded by some of the best and most fun shopping Chicago has to offer. Early October is one of the finest times to visit Chicago, with highs in the mid to high 60s F. Check out the average weather for that time here.
