St. Hubert's Story
Hubert is the patron saint of outdoorsmen, hunters, and metalworkers. He lived in the 700s AD, and while hunting on Good Friday, Hubert had a vision of a great stag with a illuminated crucifix standing between its antlers. After his conversion and appointment to bishop, St. Hubert became know as the Apostle of the Ardennes, a vast, rugged forest land in southeast Belgium, where he converted the pagan populous to Catholicism.
