On behalf of Serra Council of Thailand and the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Thailand (Office of Seminaries and Vocations), it is my pleasure to cordially invite all fellow Serrans, spouses and friends to visit Thailand again and participate in the 80th Serra International Convention in Chiang Mai in June 2023.

Our convention organizers have already in mind planned a program balancing spiritually uplifting talks, fellowship and fun with special activities by young people who are the future of Serra and the Church.

Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand has been chosen as a host city because of its high potential convention city and the designated UNESCO Creative City of crafts and folk art. Its rich in culture is seen everywhere, from the numerous Buddhist temples with intricate northern architecture to its delicious cuisine, from encountering elephants in a sanctuary to weekend walking streets that will make the convention even more memorable.

I am confident that the supports from dynamic catholic communities in Thailand

including the Diocese of Chiang Mai and Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau, together with our enthusiasm and readiness to be a host, will guarantee another great success in this 80th Serra International Convention. And, beyond expectations again.

We look forward to welcoming you to Chiang Mai and the Kingdom of Thailand.

Mary, mother of vocations, pray for us.
