Mission of Holy Apostles Institute
The mission of the Holy Apostles Institute for Ministry and Catechesis is to educate and equip clergy, diaconal candidates and lay people to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to form faithful disciples in His Church according to the rich spiritual and theological heritage of the Byzantine tradition of Eastern Catholicism.
Programs at the Institute
This will be accomplished through the use of structured on-line learning in three certificate programs that will be made available on-line over the next two years.
- Diaconal Studies Program – For candidates for Minor Orders and Ordination to the Diaconate in the Byzantine Tradition as well as for the ongoing formation of already ordained deacons.
- Catechetical Studies Program - For Eastern Catholic Catechists who want to grow in their knowledge of the Faith of the Church and communicate that to others.
- Orientale Lumen Program - For any individual who would like to learn more about the Eastern Catholic traditions of the Church.

Courses offered at Holy Apostles will cover topics in:
- Patristics (Church Fathers)
