A disciple continues the mission of Jesus by serving others--

especially the last, the lost, the least, and the lonely. 



Jesus teaches us that whatever we do for the least of his sisters and brothers, we do personally for Him. As disciples, we are called out of our comfort zone into serving those in need. ​

At Holy Apostles, there is an opportunity for everyone to use their unique gifts to serve those in need, whether it be right here in New Berlin, throughout Wisconsin, or around the world. We have many partnerships that enable us to serve those who need it most, including those who are hungry and homeless, those with special needs and those who are elderly---just to name a few. We strive to not only meet their material needs, but also to serve their needs as human beings--to be seen, heard, and acknowledged as people of God. 

To learn more about these and other service experiences at Holy Apostles, please contact Phil Stepanski at pstepanski@hanb.org or (262) 786-2039.


Our Lenten service experience for this year will support the Haitian Ministry program at La Sagrada Familia Parish in the   Dominican Republic.  The purpose of the Haitian Ministry program is to form community, build faith and promote security within the Haitian immigrant community.  The program has many needs that must be met in order to continue serving this community.

This Lent, there are two ways you can support La Sagrada Familia’s Haitian Ministry:

One of our closest partnerships is with All Saints Parish, located on the north side of Milwaukee. We work alongside All Saints Parish to provide assistance to the residents who live in one of Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods. We help provide extra support that these individuals and families require during the Christmas season. We host a parish-wide service experience, through which the people of Holy Apostles work together to provide generously packed food boxes, as well as gift cards for groceries and basic needs. We also create opportunities for us to come together with the guests of the All Saints Food Pantry and the All Saints Meal Program in prayer and fellowship. 

We partner with many other community organizations, including:

  • Christmas Clearing Council of Waukesha County

  • Eras Senior Network

  • MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary

  • New Berlin Food Pantry

  • St. Vincent DePaul Society

We also have many of our own groups within Holy Apostles that focus on outreach to certain groups who benefit from our care and concern, including our Special Needs Ministry. 




Holy Apostles also serves the parish of La Sagrada Familia in Sabana Yegua, Dominican Republic, as well as the Haitian population living within their parish community.

Each year, we send a group of travelers to La Sagrada Familia to provide medications, vitamins, basic medical care and dental examinations to more than 250 patients. In addition, we recently helped finance a complete chapel renovation, and provided more than $25,000 toward the purchase of an     irrigation water reservoir that provides valuable support to farmers in the community of Barrera.
