SERRA DEVOTIONS FOR NOVEMBER:
PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS AND OTHER FAITHS
How blessed we are in this country to live in a democracy where persecution is rare. We are living in a world where persecution of Christians and other religious faiths are causing extreme suffering, migrations, and deaths in many countries. God hears the cry of the poor and destitute. May we also hear their cry and be moved to pray for those in need. Our Christian brothers and sisters, priests, monks and sisters are suffering terribly. Let us be moved to deep prayer for their safety and a life where they are able to live their vocation in joy and peace in serving others. Mary Mother of God, and St. Junipero Serra, pray for us.
The Serra Club is pleased to have former Parochial Vicar, Father Tyler Smedley as its speaker this coming Monday, November 7th, at 7pm at Assumption Parish Hall.
All parishioners and guests are welcome. Please come and welcome him back.
