With the Blessed Virgin Mary, the first disciple of Jesus Christ, as our example and patron, the mission of Queen of the Apostles Catholic Church is to proclaim and share the Gospel entrusted to us. We celebrate our oneness with the Risen Christ, with each other and the entire Church, through the sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist. We accept the direction given us by the Second Vatican Council. We are committed to this mission by the worship, education, fellowship, and outreach to the needy.

I am happy that you have visited our website here at Queen of Apostles Church in Belmont, North Carolina. We are a vibrant and growing community of faith that serves the communities and the peninsula of eastern Gaston County, and western Charlotte metro area as well. Queen of the Apostles is a diverse community. It is a patchwork of southern folk who have been raised in this area, who also represent as portion of the African American heritage of this part of the Piedmont of North Carolina as well as Catholics from Asia and the Pacific who have made their home here. At the same time, Catholics have moved to join us because of job relocations or other employment opportunities from the northeast US as well as the Midwest. We continue to grow as this area becomes a prime location for families coming to the metro Charlotte area.
