As Christians, we are called to care for the poor and use the gifts God has blessed us with to help our brothers and sisters in need. With the help of our parishioners, St. Hubert supports several ministries and programs within our parish and throughout the local community.
Thanks to the generosity of our parishioners, we're able to support the following organizations. See the descriptions below and learn how you can help!
The mission of the Community Life Commission is to help foster community spirit. This is done by helping other commissions with resources for welcoming and hospitality for their events and also creating other opportunities for members of the parish to get to know each other.
Sunday Morning Hospitality
Throughout the year, St. Hubert offers Sunday hospitality after the 8:30 and 10:30 Sunday Masses. It is a fun social time where parishioners and visitors can get to know each other and build a sense of community among others in the parish. Sponsors and volunteers are always needed to help make this possible. Click Here to sign up to volunteer!

The Respect for Life Committee is dedicated to serving the people of St. Hubert Catholic Community. Its mission is to protect and respect the value of human life from conception to natural death. The committee meets on a monthly basis to share information on life issues, plan upcoming events, and to pray. Contributions raised by the committee are donated to local crisis pregnancy centers and prolife organizations.
Love In the Name of Christ (INC) is a coalition of 20+ churches in eastern Carver County which provide a wide variety of services and products to families in need.
St. Hubert Catholic Community participates by providing car seats and baby cribs for the Baby Care ministry as well as birthday supplies and a small gift for the Birthday Closet gap ministry. Donations of birthday supplies, gift cards, toys and monetary donations for purchase of products are welcome.
Volunteers are needed for preparation and/or delivery of birthday bags or cribs for Love INC clients.
In addition to these ministries, St. Hubert supports a giving tree during Advent and Lent to help support additional needs. These are generally set up in the Narthex by the statue of St. Hubert.

Families Moving Forward
Beacon's Families Moving Forward program offers families experiencing homelessness hospitality, emergency shelter and a path to home with support for stability.
How does the program operate? Volunteers from many congregations throughout Carver and Scott counties create shelter space at their congregation sites. In addition to a safe place to sleep and a warm meal, volunteers share kindness and compassion with families experiencing homelessness. Completing the circle of support, our professional staff work closely with each family to address their unique barriers to stability so they may leave our shelter program for permanent housing.
St. Hubert usually hosts families for two different 1 week times during the year. Parishioners are invited to purchase, prepare and serve meals, serve as evening or overnights hosts or help with set-up and or take down .
Contact Cheryl Elenz at Cheryl.Elenz@sthubert.org or (952)934-6003 to volunteer or get more information.
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC)
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. With God’s help, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) will strive to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world by helping to instill compassion in people to hear and respond to the cries of those in need.
All of the packing of food is done by volunteers. St. Hubert typically sends volunteers on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 9:20 -11:30 AM. To volunteer with the group from St. Hubert, sign up on the Justice bulletin board outside the Fellowship Hall. FMSC packs food Monday through Saturday every week and offers 5 different, 2 hour packing times each day. You can go to their web site and sign-up your group or family to pack at any of these times.
