Why Holy Apostles?
Holy Apostles’ goal is for students, faculty and staff to be united in Christ in a culturally diverse atmosphere, fostering integral formation of the person, affective maturation and the capacity for healthy, holy and happy relationships.
We focus on the formation of the total person – humanly, intellectually and spiritually, in a unique environment that is a microcosm of the universal church. Students from 5 continents are represented in at atmosphere that promotes the dignity of the person, their search for the truth, growth in the virtues and the acquisition of knowledge for their service to others.
A simple but profound illustration is a custom at Holy Apostles: a dean picks up the tray of students after lunch and clears the table; a small act promoting loving, humble, joyful service. Here, the goals enshrined by most colleges of individual autonomy and personal freedom to fulfill one’s desires are reconciled with the social nature of the person and the common good – a philosophy lived out in a familial community.
