Who We Are

Holy Apostles is a faith community of the Episcopal Church of Minnesota, and we are a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. We are often called the “Middle Way” between Catholic and Protestant. Our worship draws on the ancient catholic traditions and our theology is more Protestant.    

In late 2004 the Holy Spirit brought 70 Hmong families in search of a church home. Holy Apostles flung open its doors, and on Pentecost Sunday, 2005, the Gospel lesson was proclaimed simultaneously in seven languages in an overflowing sanctuary. Today, we are a Hmong-majority congregation, but are home to people of Latino, Zimbabwe, and European-American ethnic backgrounds.   

Our Mission

We are a Hmong majority, multi-generational home for Episcopal Christians who desire to grow in our faith by seeking and serving God and the community. 

Our vision

We worship, learn and play together to inspire leadership and change lives. We care about building strong families, uplifting culture and traditions, and encouraging each other to know and use our gifts to live out our faith.
