St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish . Madison, Wisconsin
We, the faith community of Saint Thomas Aquinas, united with the Church throughout the world, are called by God to bring the Good News of the Gospel into the life of our community.
We strive to serve each other in a spirit of compassion and love, and to enhance justice, peace and healing in our midst.
We strive also, through our common prayer and worship with the Lord who nourishes us, to enable the gifts of the Spirit to emerge from each one of us and become more fully the disciples of Christ.

Pre-School & Kindergarten


This year we will continue with the beautiful program Liturgy of the Word. Liturgy of the Word allows children in Pre-school to participate in Mass with their families, but it also provides a space for learning the scriptures at their age level with other children of the same age. Our purpose is to allow children to experience Jesus in the Eucharist, where He makes Himself fully available to us! If you have questions about the program, please contact Lorianne Aubut. Parents who enroll their pre-school children will receive essential resources for Liturgy of the Word.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a program based on the Montessori method that guides children from ages 3 – 5 through prayer, scripture, and liturgy. This program takes place in a sacred space called the atrium, where students get to experience specific presentations and work individually with materials within the atrium. CGS allows students to be open to hearing the voice of God and it allows God to be the direct teacher in this space.

We offer CGS on Friday mornings (9:15-10:30) and Wednesday nights (6:00-7:15) to children ages 3 – 5 starting in the Fall and ending in Spring. The cost is $60 per year for STA families. We have openings for 10 – 12 students in each session (Friday and Wednesday). If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Lorianne Aubut.  For more information about CGS or to register your children, please use the form below:
