Parish History

Holy Apostles began as the Northeast Catholic Community in 1972, when 13 families began meeting in what is now the neighborhood of Village Seven. In July 1973, with Msgr. John Albert as pastor, the new parish was officially designated “Holy Apostles.” On Nov. 18, 1973, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the church. It quickly became too small for the increasing number of parishioners in the area. From 1974-80, with Father Maurice McInerney as pastor, the parish acquired an apartment building at 4605 Picturesque Dr., which was used as the pastoral center and church offices. The Holy Apostles Preschool for children ages 3-5 was held in the basement of the church. When Father Paul Wicker joined the parish in 1981, parishioners began looking for a larger home site. They purchased 5.6 acres just east of the church and two more acres facing Oro Blanco Dr.. On Aug. 15, 1983, on the Feast of The Assumption, the parishioners dedicated their church to Mary, the Queen of the Apostles, asking her guidance in the planning of the new church.

In August 1984, a fund drive was in the early stages of organization when the dream was delayed due in part to the establishiment of the Colorado Springs Diocese that January. The infant diocese was not yet able to support such a large building project. On Nov. 5, 1984, Bishop Richard Hanifen gave his permission to continue with the project and construction began. The church was dedicated on Sept. 20, 1987. The parish completely retired the project’s $4.2 million its debt on March 1, 2005. Fr. Jim Baron was installed as pastor of Holy Apostles in 2016.  In 2017, a side chapel was converted in the Divine Mercy Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, and Perpetual Adoration was established on February 11, 2017. A new front entry plaza renovation was completed in 2021 to increase gathering space. A newly-restored set of antique Stations of the Cross was also added to the church at this time. 

Today Holy Apostles has over 1,300 registered families and continues to welcome new parishioners as we encounter Christ and make disciples together.
