St. Hubert Contest
Each year, during deer season, we have a contest to determine who among us is the Master Hunter.  We attach St. Hubert's name to it because he is the patron of those who hunt.  It is our custon to give blessed religious medals with his  image to the hunters.  When the season is over we distribute small prizes and declare the winner to be this year's Master Hunter.

Longest Night Service
For many of us the Christmas holiday is fraught with memories of loss and the "jolly" character of the usual services seem out of place.  So we offer something different, a Blue Christmas service.  On the Sunday closest to the winter solstice, the longest night, we offer a Christmas service focused on quiet remembrance.  It can be a time of introspection and prayer, of healing and hope.  This is a joint effort with the folks from Christ the King Lutheran Church and will be held there at 5:00 pm.  Here's a blog that might help https://psychcentral.com/blog/dealing-with-deep-sadness-during-the-holidays/?fbclid=IwAR10Qazl8B9W_nER6kxzS73Y_NmS-5B1m0MAlE31pROJg6THbI-NiA6soEQ#.XeffU4x97DA.facebook

Christmas Services 
                                      The Christ Mass Eucharists are at 7:00 pm Christmas Eve and at 10:00 am Christmas Day.  The two services are quite different in tone if not content.  The                                         Evening service is joyful and celebratory, while the day service is quiet and solemn.
