Advent by Candlelight

Wednesday, December 9
7:00 pm | Zoom

The Virgin Mary is beloved and honored by titles in many cultures. We will lean about and pray with some of these in a special Zoom “Advent by Candlelight.” Decorate your own space with a Marian statue or prayer card and have an appetizer, dessert and tea at hand, if you wish. Pre-registration and an email address is needed, as the Zoom link will be sent to you December 6. Call 630.355.8980, x118 or email

Lessons and Carols

This year, we are not able to celebrate Lessons & Carols as we would normally — with a large gathering in the church, lectors, musicians, etc. Instead, we will be doing virtual prayer services released each Sunday of Advent with which our St. Thomas the Apostle community members can engage at home. Begins Sunday, November 29.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Wednesday, December 16
7:00 pm | Church

The parish communal celebration of reconciliation will be held this evening. Individual confession with a priest or time with a prayer partner will be available after the service.
