Confirmation Sacramental Preparation  

Confirmation deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be missionalry witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the wold.  (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops - USCCB)

Our mission in Confirmation Preparation is to prepare youth for this life of service. Youth spend a year deeper in prayer, learning about our Lord, and loving others through service.  

For additional details see our Confirmation sacramental preperation at Holy Apostles page.

Workcamp Mission Trip (9th-12th grade)

In light of the tragic events in Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood this past summer and in honor of the newly Sainted Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Holy Apostles Youth Ministry has decided to “stay right where we are” for our summer work camp experience by participating in Reach Out Reach in.

July 9 (3:00pm) -  July 14, 2017 (5:30pm)
Cost is $240 before fundraising ($100 deposit to hold space)
Reach Out Reach In invites…

  • Teens ages 15-18, who have completed ninth grade.
  • Teens who are interested in spending the week in service with children in shelters or summer programs, special needs children and adults, a family and organic farm, painting or landscaping for community organizations and so much more.
  • Teens who want to experience living in community.  Our home for the week is TBD. Youth will make new friends who share a passion for making a difference in our world, often one relationship at a time.
  • Teens who want to simplify life for just a week!  This important aspect of the week brings us into solidarity with those we serve.  We eat amazing meals together, limit our shower use to one a day, and abstain from television, cell phones, and other media.  You can do it!
  • Each day begins and ends with prayer. Sometimes it is woven into the day, as we have experiences that we turn over to our loving God. Reconciliation is available during the week, and we invite families to join us on Friday for a closing Liturgy and celebration of the week.
  • Each evening we share stories and reflect on the service of the day in light of  Catholic Social Teaching and Justice education.
