Welcome to Religious Education at St. Thomas the Apostle in Naperville. Our Religious Education program serves children beginning at walking age all the way through to Confirmation. For adults, Religious Education continues through our Adult Faith Formation programs including activities that focus on deepening faith and the RCIA program for adults looking to come to full Communion with the church at the Easter Vigil.
Sacramental Preparation helps members of our faith community prepare for and understand each sacrament. Our Religious Education program guides students through Sacramental Preparation as they reach the age required for the sacrament. Children who are 3, 4, 5 and 6 years of age who have not been baptized are offered a special Baptism Program. Contact the Religious Education Office for more information.
