Prayer – Novena For the SAFA Charity Dove Hunts 2023

Prayer Request for the intercession of St. Hubert, patron Saint of Hunters, for a Holy Hunt – 2023

St. Hubert teaches us that holiness and hunting need not be mutually exclusive. Pray these prayers as a 9-day novena to sanctify the SAFA Dove Hunt asking for the intercession of St. Hubert to have a safe, virtuous, faithful & fruitful hunt.

Novena for faithful, fun, & fruitful SAFA Charity Dove Hunts on Sept 1 & 4 (Bishop John Yanta Memorial Hunt)

– Aug. 27 – Sept. 4, 2023

Prayer to be an honorable hunter

By the grace of God, may I always honor, thank and adore the Lord God Who created the animals and saw that each species was good. Let me love the God Who made humans in His own image and likeness and set them over the whole world, to have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth (Gen 1:26). By my honorable conduct as a hunter let me give a good example and teach new hunters principles of honor, so that each new generation can show reverence for God, respect other hunters and the animals, and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.

Prayer to hunt for souls, like St. Hubert

Lord, You spoke to St. Hubert and converted him to You during a stag hunt. You changed him into a hunter of souls, yet You continued to use his skills as a hunter to open minds to Your Gospel. I ask that You make me into a hunter of souls above all other hunting activities. May I look for the opportunities to speak of You and Your Good News of salvation. Let the hunting site itself be a place that uplifts the soul. May our time alone be an opportunity to pray and listen to You. May all the actions of the rest of my life be a constant hunt for You, for the opportunities You give us to evangelize, and to target the souls most in need of Your love.

Prayer for a safe, faithful, fun and successful SAFA Dove Hunt that will bear much fruit that will last

St. Hubert I ask you to intercede for SAFA and all of its Dove Hunt benefactors, contributors, participants, volunteers and vendors to desire to pursue The Truth with perseverance through love, to grow in our knowledge of and love for Jesus Christ, to turn our lives into an occasion of loving You and serving Your Church consistently, simply, cunningly and effectively, to profess Your Word in charity, to proclaim Your Truth with holy boldness, and to vocalize Your Truth with effectiveness at all times so we can share Your Good News for Your greater glory and honor, and the good of all Your people.

St. Hubert, please help us to preserve intact the treasure of The Faith and pray for us to have a passion and strength similar to yours to hunt for souls and combat the enemies of Christianity, inside and outside of The Church and for this special intention of helping SAFA faithfully persevere in its mission to protect, defend and promote the family in the public square putting good intentions into good actions, being doers of The Word (James 1:22) glorifying You and spreading Your Good News that would bear fruit that will last (Jn 15:16).

St. Hubert help us to rebuild a culture of life, marriage, family and responsibility that will help our public officials to be empowered and desire to fulfill their duty to protect life, liberty, freedom of speech, religion, legitimate defense, hunting and conscience and acknowledge the true nature of marriage and the family, to protect and foster them, to safeguard public morality, and promote domestic prosperity in the City of St Anthony and throughout Bexar County and the State of Texas so that each person can pursue and experience everlasting happiness in and through the peace and joy of God the Son, Jesus.

I ask this, and for the repose of Bishop John W. Yanta’s soul, though the intercession of St. Hubert, St. Eustace, St. Anthony, Christopher Columbus, Ven. Fr. Anthony Margil, Charles Carroll, Moses Austin, Sam Houston, St. Josemaria Escriva, Bishop John W Yanta and all the patrons of SAFA especially St. Joseph and Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, in the name of Jesus Christ and through Him.


Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.
