Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin January 26, 2020

“He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father and followed Him.”  (Matthew 4:22)  Just as Jesus called the first apostles, He calls each of us to follow Him, too.  Not everyone is called to leave their business or family behind, but we are expected to put God first in everything.  Everything from our time in daily prayer, our talent in participating in one of our parish ministries, and our treasure to support the financial needs of our parish mission.
