St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church - Naperville, IL

Holy Week Services at St. Thomas

As we prepare for Holy Week, we continue to listen to God’s call to conversion. St. Thomas welcomes you to come and celebrate Holy Week – come experience God’s love and mercy!

If you’re a long-time parishioner who graces our pews on a regular basis, we’re deeply grateful for you. If you’re new to the parish, we’re excited to share with you the marvelous ways God is working. St. Thomas is a family, rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing spiritually together, we worship, we learn, we serve our community, and we reach out to the world with life-transforming truth. Our doors are open, and more importantly…our hearts are open, no matter who you are.  If you’ve been searching for a place to belong, then St. Thomas might be for you. If you are here as a visitor, we hope that you’ll leave as a friend who’s been blessed by worshiping with us.

Look over the Holy Week schedule and see where God is calling you. Questions? Give us a call – we’ll be glad to answer any questions you might have!
