About Holy Apostles

We are Holy Apostles Catholic parish in Meridian, Idaho, founded on the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ as revealed to the twelve apostles and guided by the Holy Spirit. We are called to foster faith and community, to serve the spiritual and physical needs of our parish and to reach out to the whole family of God.

As a parish family, we are nurturing each member through word and sacrament, and by proclaiming God's presence through liturgy, religious education, social life, and outreach to those in spiritual or physical need.

Parish History

Our parish began in 1920 as St. Mary's Catholic Mission in Eagle, Idaho. This Mission became St. Matthew's Catholic Church in 1971.
In Meridian, Idaho in 1946, St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Catholic Church was dedicated by Bishop Edward Kelly. 
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini became Holy Spirit Catholic Church in 1974.

In 1998, the two parishes became Holy Apostles North and Holy Apostles South with the goal to combine them.
The first liturgy celebrated at the current Holy Apostles Catholic Church was Easter Vigil 2001. This church was dedicated on June 6, 2001 by Bishop Michael P. Driscoll, Bishop of Boise.
