The Trumpeters of the Kolowrat Forests Performed at St. Hubert’s Mass
On Saturday November 9, 2019, the Saint Hubert Mass was held in Kladruby, at the monastery Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, and officiated by Miroslav Martiš of the Roman Catholic parish of Pilsen. The mass was held in honor of the patron saint of all the hunters and foresters, and marked the culmination of the St. Hubert Festivities.
During the ceremony, the Parson blessed hunters, forests, animals, and all of nature. As per tradition, the huntsmen laid a slain buck before the altar. As part of the Holy Mass, the Trumpeters of the Kolowrat forests performed the ceremonial hunting fanfares from the St. Hubert’s Mass. Organist Jana Boučková also played. Dozens of guests attended this year’s mass.
