It is our desire that all students grow in knowledge of their faith and in the love of Christ and His Church. We can only do this with the extended help and support of the family. We believe that parents by their example and guidance are the primary religious educators of their children. The Religious Education Program is a fundamental part of the parish’s ministries and has steadily been growing in recent years as younger families with children have joined the Parish. St. Thomas the Apostle parish is also blessed with a multi-ethnic and multilingual faith community.
Religious Education classes support the parents by providing a formal learning situation and by offering opportunities for peer and community expressions of faith. The primary purpose of St. Thomas the Apostle Religious Education Program, also known as Children’s Church, is to provide our children and youth with catholic faith formation through catechesis, scripture, worship, service and community as outlined by the Diocese of Columbus, Religious Education. Every child is given the opportunity to discover, develop, and maximize his/her talents religiously, morally and socially.
