MEET OUR NEW
Hello and Pax Christi, SPP!
For those of you who don’t know me already, my name is Dan Apadula, and I’m blessed to be starting as the new Director of Religious Education for the parish. You may recognize me from Sunday and daily Masses and other events with the community—for the last two years, I worked as the campus minister for the Newman Catholic organization at Stevens. As I transition to my new position in the Theology department at St. Peter’s Prep, I’m very grateful that I will have the opportunity as DRE to serve this community that I have quickly grown to cherish.
God has granted me a deep passion for ministry work; in addition to my position at Stevens, I worked in campus ministry at St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia, I have served as a youth minister at St. Thomas More in Fairfield, NJ, and immediately after graduating college, I entered the Jesuit novitiate to discern a vocation to the priesthood. I am always searching for the way that God wants me to serve His people and teach them about the love He has for us, and I’m thrilled that search has brought me here to prepare the youth of the parish to encounter Christ in the sacraments.
I’m looking forward to co-laboring with you all in proclaiming the Gospel!
We believe that our children are the future of the Church - so at SPP, Faith Formation is interwoven into everything that we do!

From Children's Choir to Confirmation prep to 1st Holy Communion, we’ve built a spiritual home for everyone!
