Helping children and youth realize their potential is very important to the Holy Apostles parish family. We partner with Emmanuel Episcopal Center to help with Operation Backpack (providing school supplies to children whose families would otherwise be unable to afford those items) and Operation Joy (providing needed items and some toys to make Christmas brighter for EEC children). A team of Holy Apostles parishioners also serve as mentors to youth from EEC, helping them with school work and providing them with a much-needed connection to the world beyond their own neighborhood.
