Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin July 22, 2018

“…come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest awhile.” MARK 6:31  Do you spend time, every day, alone and in silence listening to how God is calling you?  If not, you are missing out on a wonderful opportunity to develop a more personal relationship with Him. Unless we talk and more importantly, listen to God every day, how else will we know how He is calling us?  Consider making a retreat this year, spend some “alone” time with God.
