Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin January 22, 2023

“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. In gratitude to God, we should give our first and best of everything to Him: 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.

[Jesus] said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel basket, or under the bed, and not on the lamp stand? For there is nothing hidden, except to be disclosed; nor is anything secret, except to come to light.” (Mark 4:21-22)

Ponder: How, when, and where do I let my light shine in the world?

Prayer: Lord, you have filled us with the light of your Holy Spirit. Teach me to let go of fear and doubt and to shine the light of love and hope wherever I go.

Do Something Beautiful for God – The Essential Teachings of Mother Teresa

January 20 – Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

January 21 – The world is changed by your example,m not your opinion.

January 22 – I prefer you to make mistakes in kindness than work miracles in unkindness.

January 23 – Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at Hid disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.

January 24 – Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.

January 25 – Your true character is most accurately measured by how you treat those who can do nothing for you.

January 26 – I want you to be concerned about you next-door neighbor. Do you know you next -door neighbor?


Infant Baptism: Catechetical Class is required; please contact Fr. Luis early during pregnancy or adoption.

Anointing of the Sick: Please call the Parish Office during serious illness or before surgery.

Shut-Ins: If you know anyone who cannot come to Church, please let the office know, so they can be put on a visiting schedule by a Eucharistic Minister. 

Marriage: All Catholics who have made a decision to enter marriage must see a priest six months prior to the desired date of marriage. If a Catholic is contemplating marriage to a non-Catholic, the Catholic must still contact a priest to fulfill the requirements of the Catholic Church for the marriage to be validly recognized by the Church.
