Mission Statement

Welcome to the Holy Apostles Mass Association, a spiritual mission of Holy Apostles College and Seminary.  In the 1950’s, Rev. Eusebe Menard founded the seminary with two goals: (1) to form men as holy Catholic priests and (2) to care for donors through daily Masses and prayers offered for their intentions.  He helped men with delayed or second vocations to follow Jesus Christ, the great High Priest.

Since then, the Mass Association is committed to his legacy of care for souls through the daily Masses and prayers of those here.  One of our priests described the mission of the Mass Association as follows. “Our apostolate goes beyond providing people with an appropriate Mass Card. . . . We offer what the world does not: an invaluable gift of trust and hope in an unseen God.  Every day, we receive letters from people on the verge of despair who somehow manage to cling to … faith with a desperate, heroic tenacity.  It didn’t take me long to realize that my primary concern had to be with the ‘mystery of suffering.’  Day after day, they bear the burden of physical and emotional pain.  And in their need, they turn to us.  Our apostolate is one of consolation, to give encouragement and hope and support to the prisoners of age, of suffering, of rejection” (Rev. Robert McQueeny in 1996 Newletter).

In addition, we also celebrate the joys of life for special occasions, such as special birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, significant accomplishments and great gratitude for others.  Whether joyful or sorrowful, our Lord walks with us in all the mysteries of our lives.

There are several ways to entrust your loved ones to Our Lord.  You may order our frequently requested gifts: Perpetual and Annual Mass Cards; Individual Masses and Novenas of Masses offered on special occasions: Our Lady of Lourdes; Lent; Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Assumption of Blessed Virgin Mary, Guardian Angels, Saint Therese and Christmas.  Order Perpetual and Annual Mass Cards online or by telephone.  Otherwise, call 860-632-3057 or email for Individual Masses, Novenas of Masses as well as Perpetual and Annual Mass Cards.

One final point, all donations are used to defray the high cost of seminary education.  We are not funded by any diocese; rather, we depend on tuition and generous donations to pay for our operating expenses.  Your use of our Mass Cards will bless the living and deceased and our seminary as well.  “Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; and confirm for us the work of our hands.”  Psalm 90:17
