Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin September 23, 2018
“If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.” MARK 9:35
Jesus teaches us that we are called to serve one another. Sacrifice is not a word that many people like to hear. We think it means that we must give up something that we want. However, the literal meaning of sacrifice is “to make holy,” from the words “sacer” = sacred and “facere” = to make. In other words, we make our lives holy by sharing our gifts in the service of God.

Assumption-Florian Fall Harvest Potluck
The Assumption Ladies will host their "Annual Harvest Potluck" on Sunday, October 7, after 10:30 Mass.
We ask all families to bring a dish to share. Group 3 will serve and clean up.
After the meal, Kirsten Fugleseth of St. Joseph's parish in Fertile, will give a presentation on her two pilgrimages to Medjugorje. On June 24, 1981, in the small parish of Medjugorje in the former communist country of Yugoslavia (now Bosnia-Herzegovina), six children claim to have had an encounter with Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary. These young people, now all adults, claim that Mary has continued to appear to them nearly every day since the apparition, giving them messages for the world. The "messages" consist of exhortations to continuous prayer, fasting, daily bible reading, Confession and Holy Mass. Each year, millions of pilgrims travel to this small community to experience their own personal encounter with Christ.
