Welcome to Queen of the Apostles' Church!
I hope you will discover our website is a window into the life and ministry of a parish community that seeks by its everyday life to imitate the Gospel and offer the hospitality of Jesus to all we meet.
Queen of the Apostles, celebrating its
50th year in 2015, is a growing
community which offers a variety of
opportunities for young and old alike
to find nourishment, formation in the
faith and a life of worship and praise.
You will find in our many ministries
opportunities for formation in the faith
through adult learning programs as
well as faith formation and community
building for elementary, middle school
and high school aged youth. We also
strive to “meet people where they are”
by providing reflection programs for
moms, dads, men and women and our
senior adults, too. At the same time
that we “reach inside” to nurture and
sustain the faith community, Queen of
the Apostles has a strong tradition of
also “reaching out” to serve the broader communities in which we live through care and commitment to Christian service. Our prayer is made practical in our outreach to children, homebound and those in material and financial need. Along with a variety of outreach opportunities that provide direct service to others, we have committed a tithe of 5% of our offertory each week to assist the work of up to 20 non-profit organizations in our area. On a monthly basis we also sponsor a food collection (the last full weekend of each month) to help the pantries of some of our local crisis assistance organizations.
In everything you find here – from KidZone to Meals on Wheels, from the celebration of the Eucharist to Bible Study – you will find God’s love inviting you to a deeper walk with us as we seek to bring God’s reign into our little part of western North Carolina.
Learn what you can from these pages. Better still, come and see and journey with us. We believe we can enrich your faith and your presence with us will enrich ours.
Fraternally in the Lord:
Father Frank Cancro
