Assumption Parish Bulletin June 23, 2018

“…Behold, one is coming after me; I am not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.” – ACTS 13:25  Stewardship is a lifestyle, it’s not a program or a process. It’s how we are called to live our lives twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week! It challenges us to live “God-centered” lives, not “self-centered” lives. Reflect on your daily activities, do you do them for the glory of God or for the glory of your own name?
