Parish Pastoral Council
The Parish Pastoral Council is the consultative body of the parish and shares responsibility with the pastor for the pastoral life of the parish. St. Hubert Parish Pastoral Council strives to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among God’s people in the parish for the purpose of investigating and weighing matters that bear on pastoral activities and formulating practical conclusions regarding them. It is a representative body rather than body of representatives.
The function of the Parish Pastoral Council is to provide the climate in which parishioners can grow in a deeper relationship with God and each other, and to minister to the total well being of parish members, be they individuals or families. Through prayer, study and discernment, the parish council recommends policies, services and support programs to meet the needs of the parish and reach out to the larger community. The Parish Pastoral Council encourages and supports parish ministries and identifies and provides for the communal, social, spiritual and educational needs of all of the parishioners.
