Christian Formation (Grades K4 - High School Confirmation) Registration
Registration is available by clicking here -- online or by printing the forms. Forms are also available in the Narthex. Registrations are preferred by Wednesday, July 31. Please return the Registration AND Parent Opportunities Forms via the office, the mail, or by scanning / emailing. Fees can be paid with cash, check, or online. Financial assistance is available upon request.
Registration for Confirmation preparation also occurs at this time. If you know any families with 11th or 12th graders, please let them know. We are especially seeking to contact those in Catholic high schools since their email addresses are harder to locate! Note that youth in public schools attend BOTH the High School AND the Confirmation sessions. Youth in Catholic schools attend only the Confirmation sessions.
Calendars are available online or in the Gathering Space. The K4 to Grade 11 program begins with a parent / youth meeting on Sunday, September 8 at 9:15 am in the Church. The Confirmation program beings with a parent / youth meeting on Sunday, September 15 at 5:30 pm in the Church hall.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word
QOA is excited to pilot Children’s Liturgy of the Word this summer / fall at the 10:30 am Mass. Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) lets children experience God’s Word at Mass on their level. The children are sent forth after the Opening Prayer, celebrate the Liturgy of the Word in Grellinger Hall, and return during the Preparation of the Gifts. Here are the details…
At the Sunday 10:30 AM Mass on Aug 25, Sep 8, Oct 20, Nov 24, and Dec 22.
- For children in Grades K4 through 2. Younger children with parental supervision.
- Participation is always optional.
- Parents are always welcome.
- No registration is necessary – simply come and see!
CLW will be facilitated by Brian McLinden, Director of Liturgy and Music, and parish volunteers (youth and adult). After this summer / fall, the CLW pilot will evaluated before we move forward. If you are interested in helping or have feedback, please contact Brian at email@example.com.
Consider Alpha this Fall!
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring life and faith. Alpha is run around the world and everyone is welcome – high school seniors and senior citizens -- people of no faith and lifelong Catholics. Most Alphas have three key things in common: free food, an inspiring video, and good conversation.
Sessions are on Tuesday evenings at Queen of Apostles. We begin September 24 and end December 10. We are off on October 15. The “Day Away” is on Saturday, November 16 at Saint Anthony on the Lake. Register online by clicking here or with a form in the Gathering Space. Join us and see what it’s all about!
Come Make Mercy Mats!
What are all those plastic bags for??? Mercy Mats! Mercy Mats are homemade bed rolls that will be distributed by our friends at MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary in Milwaukee. YOU are invited to make Mercy Mats! We’ve split the process into 2 nights – come to either or both! Night 1 is Monday, August 19 and Night 2 is the following Monday, both 6:30 to 8 pm. Night 1 is making plarn (plastic yarn). Night 2 is “crocheting.” No experience necessary. All materials provided. That said, if you have a rotary mat / cutter, please bring them along. Join us!

Please be aware that there have been some scam phone calls/texts with someone claiming to be Fr. Joe asking for help in the form of Google Play gift cards. Another has gone out claiming to be Fr. Chuck. Please do not respond to the message.
