Holy Apostles offers a faithfully Catholic, 100-percent online education program as well as an on-campus program for commuter students at its Cromwell, Connecticut, campus.

The campus houses both a college and a seminary, offering lay men and women the opportunity receive a well-rounded liberal arts education with emphasis in the areas of philosophy and authentic Catholic theology, together with seminarians and religious sisters—all of them studying, dining, and praying together daily.

The seminary was founded in 1956 by the Very Rev. Eusebe Menard, O.F.M., and entrusted to the Missionaries of the Holy Apostles to provide a college-level education program and formation for men discerning a vocation to the priesthood. Today it serves a large number of dioceses from the Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, Canada, and Vietnam, as well as several small religious orders.

In 1972 Holy Apostles expanded to offer undergraduate degrees for lay men and women, both associate’s and bachelor’s degrees, and it also awards graduate degrees and certificates both on campus and completely online. Enrollment continues to grow, with an increase in applications over the past several years.

“The lay students appreciate praying with seminarians, studying with seminarians and having lunch with them, but it is also hugely beneficial for the seminarians as well. Students at Holy Apostles share the lived experience of communion,” said Father Douglas Mosey, C.S.B., the president-rector.

Holy Apostles prides itself on its orthodoxy and is committed to cultivating Catholic leaders for evangelization. “There will be plenty of opportunity for our students to defend the faith and be on the front lines of secular culture when they graduate,” said Father Mosey.

Holy Apostles is a commuter campus, although the College is considering expanding residence halls for future students. The College has convents on campus for several religious sisters from Vietnam who are pursuing undergraduate degrees.

Holy Apostles is an independent institution, and its seminary is not controlled by any single diocese. The ex officio chairman and chancellor is the Bishop of Norwich, and the board of directors includes the Archbishop of Hartford, the Bishop of Bridgeport, up to five members of the Missionaries of the Holy Apostles, lay representatives, and the president-rector.

All presidents of Holy Apostles have been priests. Father Mosey, who holds a Ph.D., has been president-rector since 1996.

With the net price of tuition and board at only $9,870, Holy Apostles is much more affordable than the average liberal arts college in the U.S.  Financial aid is available for students as needed, including federal loans.

At Holy Apostles, students can study on campus or take up to 100 percent of their classes online.

The college curriculum emphasizes the Catholic liberal arts tradition, excellence in teaching and learning, philosophy, and theology.

Undergraduates can earn an associate’s degree in liberal arts and theology, or they can pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy, theology, sacred art, English in the humanities, or history in the social sciences.

Graduate students can earn a Master of Arts degree in pastoral studies, philosophy, or theology.  Students can also earn graduate certificates in all the College’s concentration areas.

The 60-credit core includes six Catholic theology courses, which include Catechism, Theology of the Body, Synoptic Gospels, Scripture, Moral Theology, and Liturgy. There also are six philosophy courses, including Philosophy of God. Other required courses include several in the traditional liberal arts disciplines, especially in literature and history.

Some of the courses are taught in an interdisciplinary manner, such as the team-taught course on the development of the social sciences. Interdisciplinary electives include religion and law, Catholic approaches to counseling, and bioethics.

Faculty members teaching philosophy and theology make a profession of faith and promise obedience to the bishop and the Magisterium. Theology professors must have the mandatum to teach. All members of the college and seminary faculties are approved by the bishop on the recommendation of the rector.

Holy Apostles offers an Online Writing Lab to assist both on-campus and online students with specific questions regarding research and composition. The lab is staffed by professionals who are equipped to work with students who have learning disabilities and students who encounter English as a Second Language.

Holy Apostles has attracted a wide range of students, from traditional recent high school graduates to students who have spent long periods away from academic study.

The Bioethics Center was founded in 1982 to articulate authentic Catholic teaching with respect to bioethical issues, from technological reproduction to end-of-life decisions. The Center offers information to students, scholars, and the general public online, linking to bioethics resources within the Church, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, various bioethics organizations, universities, publications, journals, medical associations, and more, providing a broad-based and solid Catholic foundation for research and study.

Holy Apostles has a working agreement with the National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) in Philadelphia allowing a student, while earning credits toward a Masters in Theology at Holy Apostles, to also earn a certificate in bioethics from the NCBC.

In the fall of 2012, Holy Apostles added Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) to its offerings and allows anyone with an interest in the material to register into them for free via its MOOC registration site.

Holy Apostles has daily Mass at Our Lady Queen of the Apostles chapel. The 7:00 a.m. Mass is attended by the seminarians, sisters, lay students and members of the faculty and staff. The 10 a.m. Sunday Mass is open to all.

The Sacrament of Confession is available before Mass and two afternoons a week. There is a daily Holy Hour with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, as well as 24-hour adoration beginning every Thursday evening through Sunday morning.

Students also have the option of participating in Mass and other spiritual activities, including perpetual adoration, at nearby St. John Church in Cromwell. The parish is staffed by Coventual Franciscan Friars.

Holy Apostles entices students with a modest but picturesque and peaceful campus. It is also historic; the oldest building was erected in 1751. The campus is wooded, and students and visitors enjoy a guided trail tour known as the Tree Walk.

Residential facilities for lay students are not available on campus. Some students taking on-campus classes share local apartments, but most commute from their homes. To help students with local housing, the admissions director works with local realtors and homeowners. The college has developed a database of “host families” from local parishes.

Health services are available at Middlesex Hospital and Connecticut Valley Hospital, each located five minutes away in Middletown.

Cromwell is a town of 13,500 people that is 15 minutes from the state capital of Hartford and about 30 minutes from New Haven. The quiet town also is safe, with a crime rate only about 40 percent of the national crime index.

Hartford, a long-time center of the insurance industry, has a population of 125,000. It has a number of attractions, including the Mark Twain House and the Hartford Civic Center, which hosts cultural and sports events.

Cromwell can be reached by the north-south Interstate 91. Amtrak serves Hartford, and the city’s Bradley International Airport provides non-stop service to several major cities.

Holy Apostles doesn’t offer a large number of student activities, but it continues to build student life and find ways to join students in fellowship and evangelization activities.

“The social life is very different here than most traditional colleges,” said Fr. Mosey. “The social life here is adoration, study, and pro-life work.”

The student-run Holy Apostles Life League, which coordinates pro-life activities, is quite active. Its activities include a prayer vigil on Saturday mornings at one of the abortion clinics in Hartford during the academic year, followed by the Mass of Mercy in the seminary chapel. In addition, a Holy Hour for Life and Mercy is held at the chapel every Saturday and includes the Divine Mercy Chaplet. The Life League also coordinates the annual bus trip for students, faculty, and staff in January to the March for Life in Washington, D.C., and there is a tomb on campus marking the grave of an unborn victim of abortion where a flame continually burns.

The majority of undergraduate students at the Cromwell campus are involved in campus liturgical life and spiritual activities. Social events are often informal and student-initiated, and include cookouts, going to movies, playing several sports, as well as several off-campus activities. With the ability to study and worship alongside seminarians and consecrated religious, lay undergraduates readily substitute expanded social activities and residential facilities for the college’s commitment to fidelity and evangelization.

Holy Apostles has expanded its lay enrollment since the 1970s. The college’s small size and heavy emphasis on philosophy and authentic Catholic theology attract students who seek a quiet, prayerful atmosphere to prepare for evangelization, graduate study, and careers.

With its on-campus and online courses open to all students, Holy Apostles creates a unique interaction among students preparing to serve God in every way. As explained by Fr. Mosey, “Lay graduates often express their gratitude for studying side by side with seminarians and consecrated men and women, as together we form the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Mystical Body of Christ.”

Recognized for fidelity, excellence, and affordability, Holy Apostles is an option well worth considering for anyone who won’t miss the trappings of the typical American college.

President's Note

A message from the president.

Dear Parents and Prospective Students:

Thank you for your interest in Holy Apostles College and Seminary.  Our mission is to cultivate lay, consecrated and ordained Catholic leaders for the purpose of evangelization.

Towards this end, we offer a philosophically-based, Catholic, liberals arts undergraduate degree program to prepare students for what Pope Paul VI called “the greatest drama of our time” – i.e., the split between the Gospel and culture.  A degree from Holy Apostles prepares students to be active participants in the culture of life and to succeed in their chosen secular professions.

Holy Apostles is one of the few Catholic colleges in America where lay students, religious and seminarians attend many of the same classes together, worship together and grow intellectually and spiritually together. We are also one of the few Catholic colleges where all members of the faculty must be approved by the bishop in order to ensure fidelity to the magisterium.

Our Catholic identity is very strong and we are committed to providing an affordable education to educate young men and women while forming moral and ethical leaders who know and love God.

I invite you to visit or call to learn more about the exciting opportunities we offer.  You are always welcome.

Very Rev. Douglas L. Mosey, C.S.B., Ph.D.
