Matt D’Antuono, Holy Apostles student, recently published a book entitled A Fool’s Errand: A Brief, Informal Introduction to Philosophy for Young Catholics. In a world where we are bombarded by fuzzy and faulty non-thoughts by the media and society, this book provides an inspirational and accessible introduction for newcomers to the world of philosophical thought.
Holy Apostles professor emerita Dr. Ronda Chervin and her spiritual director, Al Hughes have written and published a book entitled Simple Holiness: A Six-Week Walk on the Mountain of God. We all are called to holiness, but we may not know what holiness means or how to approach it. Do you really desire to climb the ladder of holiness?
Fr. Lawrence Edward Tucker, SOLT, Holy Apostles Alumnus, has recently published To Whom the Heart Decided to Love. To Whom The Heart Decided To Love is a story about how one person, through the merciful love of God, became part of the solution.

On June 15th, Prof. Charles Rex, Chair of Music History and Violin at Holy Apostles, travelled to New York City for the screening of the documentary, Concerto, that was voted the Best Documentary of the Year by the International New York Film Festival.
Concerto is a feature-length biographical documentary about Charles Rex and his brother Christopher Rex, who were “two talented and accomplished brothers who were raised by a brilliant but highly disturbed father.”
Concerto has won several international awards and “provides a rare glimpse into the lives of two artists as they look back on the ghosts of their past, and highlights the struggles that young, gifted children must often endure at the hands of demanding parents.”
Prof. Charles Rex was a first violinist with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Maestro Eugene Ormandy. In 1980, he was hired as the Associate Concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic by Maestro Zubin Mehta. Prof. Rex recently retired and is now teaching Music History courses and Violin at Holy Apostles.
