Thank you St. Hubert Parish for your generous support of women and babies through the Baby Bottle Project! Together we raised $6,029 that will support babies and their mothers this year through the wonderful work of The Women's Center.
The floors in the lower level of the church have been re-waxed. When doing a set up or take down, please stack chairs and then use the chair dolly, located in the maintenance room, to move the stacks to the wall. Dragging the chairs across the floor ruins the finish. I appreciate your cooperation in keeping the floors maintained!
Join Fr. Fred Licciardi, C.PP.S. the Catholic Minds ~ Catholic Matter series continues. The decline of the Papal Monarchy (19th Century) and the development of Vatican II (20th Century) Through the historical restructuring and reorientation of the Church during the 19th century, the popes turned more toward pure spiritual and moral leadership in a tangled world. In the 20th Century (January 1959), Pope John XXIII announced the creation of the Second Vatican Council which shocked the world. There hadn't been an ecumenical council — an assembly of Roman Catholic religious leaders meant to settle doctrinal issues — in nearly 100 years.
