Apostolate for Military and Veteran Families

Mission Statement

In May, 2013, the Apostolate for Military and Veteran families was founded to address the various emotional, spiritual and pastoral needs of those men and women who have defended our country in all branches of military service.

As an initiative promoting the goals of the New Evangelization, the Apostolate works in collaboration with partner organization and established veteran services that seek to heal spiritual wounds and promote the dignity of the person at all levels.
