Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin October 12, 2019

“Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?” (Luke 17:18)  Most of us live “easy” lives. We have food, shelter, and clothing. We go on vacation every year and own a car or two. Most of us take this all for granted. Did you ever notice that people with the least amount of possessions are usually the most grateful? Shouldn’t this be the other way around? Take time every day and thank God for all He has given you.

**To the friends of Fr. Joseph Menker, OMI  We regret to inform you of the passing of Fr. Joseph Menker, OMI.  It was his wish that we inform you of his return to the House of our Heavenly Father on Wednesday, September 25, in Belleville, IL.  Fr. Joe had been in failing health for some years & was most recently living at the Dammert Care Center on the grounds of the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows.  About 10 days ago, he suffered a stroke & was hospitalized.  He grew progressively weaker & died under hospice care at the Memorial Hospital in Belleville. A copy of his obituary is posted on the bulletin board.  Fr. Menker served at Assumption-Florian from 1971-77.  May He Rest In Peace. 

**Next Weekend we will celebrate World Mission Sunday.  Pope Francis invites the entire Church to support mission dioceses in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and parts of Latin America and Europe, where priests, religious & lay leaders serve the world's most vulnerable communities.  Please keep the Pope's missions in your prayers and be generous in next week's collection for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.
