St. Hubert and Holy Family High School to Share Bible
June 15, 2011 - An anonymous donor recently gifted The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Edition to be shared by Holy Family Catholic High School and St. Hubert Catholic Community. This is the first time the Bible has been jointly shared by a church and school and that a high school will have access to the seven-volume set.
Holy Family, located in Victoria, Minn., is an Archdiocesan high school teaching in the Lasallian tradition. St. Hubert, which also includes an elementary school, is located in Chanhassen just minutes from the high school. The gift was made possible by one of its parishioners.
On May 1, the Heritage Edition was received and blessed at a Mass at St. Hubert. Fr. Eric Hollas, OSB, con-celebrated the Mass and was part of the celebration of this extraordinary gift.
A week later, on May 7, St. Hubert held an ecumenical community event "Celebrate the Word of God and the Gift of the Creative Spirit" that included a variety of workshops and activities inspired by the creation of the sacred art work. The programs ranged from grade school students reflecting on the Pentateuch volume’s Creation illumination to praying the illuminations through visio divina. Parishioners also had an opportunity to sign up as trained docents to help the church, school groups and visitors experience the fascinating journey and art in The Saint John’s Bible.
