Holy Apostles Catholic Church has been serving our community in Colorado Springs since 1972.  We have a long and fulfilling history that we are proud of.  With the arrival of Msgr. John Albert in November of 1972, Holy Apostles began with only 13 families that met in the pastor’s house and Wilson/Madison Elementary schools. With a large Catholic community in the northeast end of Colorado Springs, plans for the first church building were under way, and the church was dedicated in 1974. The number of parishioners quickly grew to 750 by the end of 1978. In 1981 Father Paul Wicker was appointed pastor of the church. In 1984 there were over 1,200 families. Holy Apostles was outgrowing its first building and finished a new church at the end of 1987 that we still occupy today.  Fr. Jim Baron was installed as pastor of Holy Apostles in 2016. Today Holy Apostles has over 1,200 registered families.
