Sunday at St. Hubert..And Some News to Share!
The Perfect Prayer
As we gather for Mass today--either on-line or in-person--the Church has us contemplate the words we say in the prayer Jesus handed onto us: "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us."
The Church calls the Our Father the perfect prayer because in a simple way it focuses us on the relationship we have with God and the desire to make his kingdom a reality in the world. It's no wonder it's the prayer we say to bring us into communion.
So please join us as we pray together as a community today. It's our prayer that keeps us united, connected and engaged with God and one another.

Deacon Dick Lawson: A Faithful Servant
We have some important news to share. After 21 years of faithful service as a deacon in our community, Dick Lawson has told us he is ready to retire from his diaconate ministry beginning October 1. He's not leaving Saint Hubert, though! See page 2
in the bulletin
to read about what's next for him.
Deacon Dick Lawson always at work! Thanks to everyone who helped with the August Food Drive to benefit the St. Aloysius Food Pantry. We filled an empty van and collected nearly $1000 in Gift Cards. The next food drive will be Sunday, September 27.
Seminarian David Jameson Returns
Mundelein Seminary is back in session, which means our seminarian, David Jameson, will be back with us from now until April. You'll hear from David next Sunday as we celebrate Seminary Sunday throughout the Archdiocese. And we'll keep you posted on how he'll stay involved with us during these challenging times.
Spread the Good News!
We've found not everyone has heard the good news yet, so please help us spread the word! In addition to our on-line Mass, we have 4 in-person Masses, too: 4:30pm Saturday and 8am, 10am and Noon on Sunday. Let your friends know if they don't receive Flocknotes, that they can sign up on our website or by calling the parish office (extension 102).
A Special Collection Today for the Holy Land
Because of the coronavirus, the traditional Good Friday Collection for the Holy Land never took place...until now. This special collection, which is a worldwide effort this weekend, continues to support the work of the Franciscans working in the Holy Land who care for the holy places and the Christians who live there. If you'd like to support their work, here's a way to
Also, thank you to everyone who is helping to keep our parish going through your weekly offerings. The coronavirus has effected us, too, along with so many families, businesses and not-for-profit organizations.
We're truly grateful for your contributions that keep our own mission going to serve our community and those in need.
Let's Pray Together
When you say the Our Father today, and you open your arms in prayer, even if you're by yourself, know you're not alone.
The opening of our arms in prayer invites God into our hearts, but like Jesus' outstretched arms on the cross, it is also a way to embrace all of us in our Saint Hubert community. We remain with Christ in our prayer; so whether we're in the church or at home, alone or with others, when we pray the Our Father, we're praying it together.
May the peace of the Lord be with you, always!
