Opening Up More and More
Dear Saint Hubert Parish Family,
This Sunday we are pleased to host twice as many parishioners as last Sunday--218 in total over two morning Masses; 8am and 10am. We'll send out news each Wednesday at 3pm to give some notice about what's available for the upcoming Sunday.
Plus, we'll keep evaluating the need for adding more opportunities. But to make it all happen, we rely on the help of our volunteers to serve as Greeters, Ushers, our Clean-Up Crew and Set-Up Crew. We can't do it without you. You're making a difference!
Only When You're Ready
Please know we also realize not everyone is ready to enter into public spaces yet, even as we try to do our best to keep a disinfected and safe environment. The news about the virus very much occupies our minds and we need to be careful. So please know we're here when you're ready. The Cardinal's dispensation from the Sunday obligation to be present at Mass is still in place.
Stay With Us!
In the meantime, our on-line community is still here--powered not just by electricity but the Holy Spirit! Join us for our
(available Sunday morning), or for those looking for an engaging way to pray, try our
Spiritual Communion Prayer Service
, which is patterned after the rhythm of the Mass. It's a great way to pray with a family.
Join the Conversation!
If you haven't checked out our
in awhile, visit us for spiritual nourishment, parish news, and ways to engage with other parishioners. It's another way to stay connected.
Food Drive: Sunday 11:30am-2pm
This Sunday, drop by food donations or paper goods to help benefit our
neighbors and friends who visit the Church of the Holy Spirit Food Pantry. They are in need once again and very much appreciate the helping hand. We're grateful to Deacon Dick Lawson, Sandy Lawson and our volunteers who give of their time and effort to coordinate this event each month. It's one of the many ways our Community Life program helps people in need.

Thank You for Your Weekly Offerings!
We are very grateful to everyone who is
sending in their contributions in the
dropping them off at the parish mailbox at the Parish Ministry Center, or giving electronically through
--even for a one time gift. (As alternative to Give Central, t

an easy-to-use donation page
. Simply select Saint Hubert and your donation will be sent to us.)
Your support has kept us going through a very difficult time that has had consequences for so many families, small businesses, restaurants, and our very own parish. May God bless you in your kindness.
Coming Soon: New Day & Time for Confession
Because of the need to keep Saturday mornings available for Funeral Masses, we'll need to move Reconciliation to a weekday. Thank you to all those who weighed in on our survey. We'll let you know the new day and time on Wednesday. In the meantime, please call Fr. Mike to schedule a time to meet.
Our Priority is Christ
Jesus urges us to look at our priorities in life in today's gospel. When we put him first, it won't compete with the other relationships in our life. Instead it will make them stronger and better. When we come to Mass--either in person or virtually on-line--we're making Christ our priority and Christ our life. The fullness of the Christ experience is the Eucharist, which we long for and we know holds us together as a Catholic community.
So let's continue to stay connected, to pray together, and to gather in his name--however and wherever it is right now.
--Fr. Mike and the Saint Hubert Parish Staff
