Dear St. Hugo of the Hills Parish Families,

Although I have served in the Archdiocese of Detroit for 40 years, St. Hugo’s is a special parish for me having served as Parish Catechetical Leader from 1996-1999, RCIA Co-Coordinator from 1999-2011, and again since 2015 as Parish Catechetical Leader. 

I began working as a catechist when I was 19 years old in my home parish, St. Mary of Celle, in Berwyn, Illinois, and later went on to received graduate degrees in both education and pastoral ministry.  Combining my love of teaching in the classroom and bringing God’s Word to families led me into faith formation.  Please know I have decided to retire from full-time ministry and remain an active parishioner at St. Hugo’s.

I thank Fr. Tony for the opportunity to serve here over the years and I thank Sr. Barb Rund who I have known and worked alongside in a variety of ways for over thirty years.  I thank the many families I have served in this parish over the years whether through Monday Religious Education, Sacrament Preparation, Children’s Liturgy of the Word, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, and Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. Last, must not least, for the parish staff and all they do behind the scenes for our parish families and especially for all the catechists with whom I have co-ministered who have enthusiastically brought the Gospel message and teachings to our parents and children.  What a privilege and blessing it has been to minister alongside each one of you over these many years.

With deep gratitude,
Mrs. Barbara Bacci Yugovich, M.A.
Parish Catechetical Leader


Please know we plan to have in-person classes for Grade K-8 beginning Monday, October 4, 2021.   We will follow any CDC Guidelines as they are presented to us at the time of the start-up of   programs.  Please register online here for Faith Formation, Gr.

As in past years, Tuition and Sacrament fees can be made through Online Giving for your convenience.   If you have any questions, you may contact the Religious Education Office at 248-642-6062 for assistance. 

St. Hugo’s also plans to offer Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for Age 4 children on Sundays during the 12:00 noon Mass and the Liturgy of the Word for Children (LWC) for ages 4-7 on Sundays during the 10:00 am Mass. 

Sunday, September 19, 2021, will mark the 50thAnniversary of Catechetical Sunday, designated by The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.  May we, as parents who are the first teachers of the faith to your children, and as catechists who bring the Good News to our children in weekly faith formation classes, re-dedicate ourselves to this mission in the year ahead!

Spring Blessings!
