Bishop Daniel Conlon, Bishop of Joliet, issued these words in response to President Obama's attempts at government control of individual conscience: On August 8 President Obama proclaimed at the University of Colorado that the federal Health and Human Services mandate covering contraceptive services places control of these matters in the hands of women. These are his words: “…But when it comes to a woman’s right to make her own health care choices, they want to take us back to the policies more suited to the 1950s than the twenty-first century. And, Colorado, you’ve got to make sure it does not happen. The decisions that affect a woman’s health, they’re not up to politicians, they’re not up to insurance companies—they’re up to you.” On the contrary, the HHS mandate places control of these matters on the federal government. Virtually every employer is now required under penalty of law to provide these services, including sterilization and abortifacient drugs, even if they violate the employer’s religious beliefs. That includes many religious organizations that employ large numbers of people and provide services benefitting the general society. The present administration is willing to trade religious freedom, one of the fundamental liberties fought centuries ago on these shores and enshrined in the Constitution, for reproductive services that serve no purpose in preventing or curing sickness or injury. Within the context of the current presidential campaign, it seems to be pursuing this serious course even to garner votes. Most Reverend R. Daniel Conlon Bishop of Joliet

A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners of SS. Peter and Paul, Back to School Many have already returned to school and most everyone will be back this coming week. Let us keep our students from early childhood all the way up to our doctoral candidates in our prayers that this year may be a truly blessed and fruitful year for them. New Director of Sacred Music at SS. Peter and Paul Matthew Sprinkle comes to our parish with a wonderful reputation for enlivening the Sacred Music repertoire of the parishes in which he has served. Matthew was the Director of Liturgical Music for the Diocese of Phoenix, Arizona as well as the Director of Music at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Avondale, Arizona. In addition to speaking before the Masses next weekend, there will be a special reception in the Ministry Center for Matthew following the 9:30 am Mass. Please come to the upper level of the Parish Ministry Center following the 9:30 am Mass and welcome him to the parish. 11 AM Mass Chapel Choir Several of the members of our 11 am Chapel Mass Choir are stepping down after long years of service. Please come to thank them and wish them well at a reception in the upper level of the Ministry Center after the 11 am Mass this weekend. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

 

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

BISHOPS RENEW PLEA TO CONGRESS AND ADMINISTRATION TO REPAIR AFFORDABLE CARE ACT Supreme Court decision does not address fundamental flaws in the law Legislation still needed to fix conscience, abortion funding, immigration problems WASHINGTON— Today the United States Supreme Court issued a decision upholding as a tax the provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that requires individuals to purchase a health plan—the so-called “individual mandate.” For nearly a century, the Catholic bishops of the United States have been and continue to be consistent advocates for comprehensive health care reform to ensure access to life-affirming health care for all, especially the poorest and the most vulnerable. Although the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) did not participate in these cases and took no position on the specific questions presented to the Court, USCCB’s position on health care reform generally and on ACA particularly is a matter of public record. The bishops ultimately opposed final passage of ACA for several reasons. First, ACA allows use of federal funds to pay for elective abortions and for plans that cover such abortions, contradicting longstanding federal policy. The risk we identified in this area has already materialized, particularly in the initial approval by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) of “high risk” insurance pools that would have covered abortion. Second, the Act fails to include necessary language to provide essential conscience protection, both within and beyond the abortion context. We have provided extensive analyses of ACA’s defects with respect to both abortion and conscience. The lack of statutory conscience protections applicable to ACA’s new mandates has been illustrated in dramatic fashion by HHS’s “preventive services” mandate, which forces religious and other employers to cover sterilization and contraception, including abortifacient drugs. Third, ACA fails to treat immigrant workers and their families fairly. ACA leaves them worse off by not allowing them to purchase health coverage in the new exchanges created under the law, even if they use their own money. This undermines the Act’s stated goal of promoting access to basic life-affirming health care for everyone, especially for those most in need. Following enactment of ACA, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has not joined in efforts to repeal the law in its entirety, and we do not do so today. The decision of the Supreme Court neither diminishes the moral imperative to ensure decent health care for all, nor eliminates the need to correct the fundamental flaws described above. We therefore continue to urge Congress to pass, and the Administration to sign, legislation to fix those flaws.

Please join us as we welcome Matthew Sprinkle as our new Director of Sacred Music. A reception will follow the 9:30am Mass on Sunday, August 26 in the Ministry Center.

ROSARY Come pray with us each Tuesday evening in the Church beginning at 7:30 PM.

All are most welcome to join us. If there is a special intention that you would like to have remembered during the weekly Rosary, please email sspprosary@gmail.com or come to the Tuesday Rosary to add your intention.

The Faith In Action Team will be making another trip down to the Missionaries of Charity soup kitchen in Chicago on Sunday, August 26th. The team will assemble in front of the church after the 6:30 AM Mass. Once we arrive at the soup kitchen (about 8:30), we will prepare and serve a meal for about 100 guests. Afterward we help clean the kitchen and then we’re done! Typically the entire meal service is completed by 11:00 to 11:30. Due to limited room in the kitchen, we can only take a maximum of 10 volunteers. If you are interested in joining us on this mission to help feed the hungry, please contact me by calling (630) 215-5469 or emailing me at theneisclan@yahoo.com. There has been an over whelming response to this ministry. The team for this trip will be assembled on a first come, first serve basis. If you don't make it this time please don't worry, there will be future opportunities. Thank you, Kevin Neis

Thursday, August 30th 7:00 PM Zuker Hall (Jr. High School)

Do you love your faith? Do you wish others had that same gift? If so, the New Evangelization needs your help. Ss. Peter and Paul will be reaching out to families registered in the parish in an effort to increase participation and the sense of community in the parish. Prayerfully consider volunteering to be part of a two person team that visits some of our parish families to make a connection, to pray with them and for them, and to invite them to a deeper commitment to parish life. You would be asked to participate in a training session and then to spend approximately 20 hours over the course of 4 to 6 weeks visiting parish families. We would like to get started by late July but this will be an ongoing ministry so please do contact us even if you cannot participate right away. To learn more about this important New Evangelization ministry, please contact Will Marrero by email at sspphomevisit@gmail.com or by phone at 312-362-5065. In this initial phase, we will only be able to visit a fraction of our families, so if you would like to request a visit, please also contact Will Marrero. An information/training session will be held on Monday, August 20th from 7:00-8:00pm in the Ministry center Social Hall.

LECTORS, SERVERS and EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION It is time to do the next schedule. This schedule will start on September 8th and end on December 1st. If you have any dates that you cannot do or changes to your availability please call Barb Bierbauer, 630-851-8416, or e-mail barb_bierbauer@comcast.net by August 14th.

SERVING OUR FELLOW MAN -SS. PETER & PAUL PARISH “Christ has no body on earth but yours, no feet but yours, no hands but yours. Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ is to look out on a hurting world. Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which He is to bless all now.” St. Theresa of Avila

The parishioners of SS. Peter and Paul Parish have a long and rich history of being Christ to their fellow man within the parish community as well as in the community at large. This week and for the next several weeks we will highlight some of the organizations and ministries that your donations help throughout the year within the parish and the community. The people of SS. Peter and Paul are what really make these organizations the helping hands of Jesus to all they serve. Established in the 1980’s the Christian Service Board was formed to coordinate service activities and charitable contributions. In the 1990’s , because the diocese mandated that all parishes have a Christian Services Commission, the Christian Service Board became our present Christian Services Commission with its chairman serving as a member of the parish council. A member from each of the numerous ministries we have at SS. Peter and Paul is invited to represent their ministry on the Christian Services Commission. Today we have hundreds of parishioners involved in the ministries that serve our fellow man throughout the year. These ministries include: Pastoral Care, Communion for the Homebound, Communion for Edward Hospital, Communion for Nursing/Retirement Homes, Visiting Friends, Medical Drivers, Emergency Meals, Bereavement Ministry, Funeral Lunches, Transitional Housing, Prayer Shawl Ministry, Gardeners for Parish Grounds, Young at Heart, Legion of Mary, People of Life, Elizabeth Ministry, For Those Who Wait, Faith In Action, Parents of Troubled Teens, Peace & Social Justice, Knights of Columbus, St. Vincent DePaul Society. SS. Peter and Paul parishioners also volunteer with these community partners: Hesed House, Loaves & Fishes, Naperville Cares, PADS, Feed My Starving Children, Northern Illinois Food Bank, Mission Opportunities, and St. Thomas Employment Ministry. NEXT WEEK- St. Vincent DePaul

LUMINARY MASS The 18th Annual "Light of My Life" Luminary Mass will be held Sunday, October 7th at 6:15 pm. The Mass will be held at the grotto in Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery. Watch the bulletin for more details.

ELIZABETH MINISTRY As Mary went in haste to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was with a child to help and comfort her, so does our Elizabeth Ministry for all those who are in need. If you have experienced infertility, loss of a pregnancy, an infant or child death, you are not alone, many of our parish families have experienced the same and the Elizabeth Ministry would like to help you through it. On the other hand, if you are expecting for the first time, or you are new parents who just had a baby or adopted a child, the Elizabeth Ministry would like to celebrate with you and offer our services to you. Through prayers, adoration hours, and sharing personal experiences, our ministers will try to bring you some peace and comfort no matter what your situation is. Contact Sarah at: 630-809 -5925 or at: elizabeth_ministry@sbcglobal.net.

TOOTSIE ROLL DRIVE The Knights of Columbus will sponsor a Tootsie Roll Drive for those with Intellectual Disabilities at all masses on September 15th and 16th. Volunteers are needed! Please contact Michael Gach at 630-777-0729 for details.

Thursday, August 23rd, our Youth Minister Mike Lewandowski will present on the topic “Faith and Works.” Join us from 7:00-8:00 pm in the Ministry Center Social Hall for the conclusion of our Summer Faith Nights looking ahead to the Year of Faith.

Do You Know Someone who may Wish to Become Catholic? Do you know someone who may be interested in becoming Catholic? As we look forward to the opening of the Year of Faith, consider inviting someone you know to check out the RCIA process. Perhaps you yourself have been attending Mass for years with family, but haven’t yet made the formal step of coming into the Catholic Church. RCIA (The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) is the process by which adults learn about the Catholic Faith, and seek entrance through the Sacraments of Initiation. RCIA is for adults who are unbaptized, baptized in other Christian communities, or adults baptized as Catholics but who have not completed the sacraments of Confirmation or Eucharist. Sessions begin Tuesday, September 11th, and run Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 through the Easter season. Contact Mike for more details at 630-718-2154 or mbrummond@sspeterandpaul.net. Coming Soon The Main Event – How many of us Catholics received the sacraments as children, but never gained an adult understanding of the Gospel and the teachings of the Church? Or perhaps it’s just time for a refresher on Catholicism 101! The Main Event is a thorough study of the Catholic Faith, beginning in the fall and finishing in the spring. It is called the Main Event because it is a significant catechesis (teaching of the Catholic Faith) offered at our parish. The Main Event is open to anyone who wishes to come. Any adult Catholic wanting to understand the Faith better – and especially to see the “why” behind many of our beliefs and practices would benefit from this series. Join us Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9:00 in the Ministry Center Social Hall beginning Tuesday, September 11th. No fees and no registration required. •

Bible Study: Great Adventure Bible Timeline – Offered Monday evenings 7:00-9:00 pm beginning September 10th, and running 24 sessions. This study offers an overview of the entire Biblical story of salvation history as you read 14 books spanning 12 biblical periods.

To register for either study, contact Denise at 630-718-2156 or dstephen@sspeterandpaul.net For questions or more info, contact Mike at 630-718-2154 or at mbrummond@sspeterandpaul.net

BAPTISM INFORMATION What about Baptism? Do you want to have your child baptized? What a joy it is to experience the gift of new life that God gives to His people. Immediately the mystery of God’s love is revealed in the mystery of His creative power which He allows Christian parents to share. Ss. Peter and Paul Parish rejoices with all parents beholding this tremendous gift. Since the Sacrament of Baptism is essential to the Christian life, Ss. Peter and Paul Parish abides by all the norms set forth by the Catholic Church in administering the Sacrament of Baptism. We want the baptism of your child to bear the full Grace that Christ bestows in this sacrament and we do not want any obstacles which would be created by not following these norms. These norms are laid down by the Roman Catholic Church and are age old and time tested norms. We ask all parents to understand the sacred nature of this sacrament which these norms protect and therefore the inability for Ss. Peter and Paul Parish to compromise these norms without endangering this sacred character. The code of canon law declares: Baptism, the gate to the sacraments, necessary for salvation in fact or at least in intention, by which men and women are freed from their sins, are reborn as children of God and, configured to Christ by an indelible character, are incorporated in the Church, is validly conferred only by washing with true water together with the required form of words.1

Page 13

someone who is practicing their faith weekly, believes what the Church believes, is validly married in the Church or living a chaste single life and has no other obstacles to being a good Catholic example of Christian life. A person of another Christian denomination or other religion cannot be a godparent; however, a Christian person of another Christian denomination may serve as a Christian witness which is not a godparent and whose name does not appear on the baptismal certificate.8 A Catholic cannot be a Christian witness. Any Catholic party is bound by the laws which govern godparents, cf. above. An individual who has left the Catholic faith cannot be a Christian witness because they have freely chosen no longer to live the Catholic faith. Parents may choose to have only one godparent. If the parents choose to have two godparents, one must be male and one female.9 The relationship of two godparents emulates spiritually the parenthood of the biological parents. Just as it is impossible to have two biological parents who are of the same sex so is it impossible to have two godparents of the same sex. 3

In order to avoid any embarrassment on your part, it is advisable that you contact the parish office prior to choosing your godparents. Your godparents will be asked to have their parish priest fill out a godparents form testifying that they fulfill the canonical requirements.

This godparent must: • Have completed the sixteenth year.3 • Be a Catholic who has received their first communion and the Sacrament of Confirmation.4 • Lead a life in harmony with the faith and the role to be undertaken.5 • Not be bound by any canonical penalty legitimately imposed or declared.6 • Not be the father or the mother.7

SSPP offers a Baptism Preparation Class for parents on either the 1st OR 2nd Monday of each month beginning at 7:30 PM in the St. Paul Center for the New Evangelization (formerly called Pastoral Hall). Our next class is Monday, September 10th. If this is your first child, you MUST attend a class before receiving a date for your baby’s baptism. (Both mom and dad are asked to attend. Godparents are also encouraged to attend.) Please sign up for the class by calling the Parish Office, 630-355-1081. (Your family should be registered with the parish in order to have your child baptized.) If you have attended a class within the last 10 years (at any parish) you need not re-attend. If you attended at Ss. Peter and Paul, simply call the office to schedule your baby’s baptism and provide the date you attended; if you attended at another parish, you will be asked to provide a letter of verification. Generally, we baptize at SSPP each Sunday of the month, (except the 2nd Sunday), at 2 PM. We also schedule baptisms on the 2nd Sunday of each month during the 11:00 AM Chapel Mass or the 12:30 PM Church Mass. (The only exception is if a special Mass or event is scheduled by the parish.) Because baptism is meant to be a celebration of the community, we DO NOT schedule private baptisms. Also, we make every effort to limit the number of children baptized at our group ceremony to six and at Mass to two. Please check with the Parish Office to make certain the date you want is available before making plans with your family. The offering to the church for a baptism is $20.00. Couples may pay when they attend the Baptismal Preparation class or they can send payment to the parish office. Required paperwork MUST be submitted to the parish office no later than ten (10) business days prior to the baptismal date, or your date will be rescheduled. This includes all necessary information regarding family records and godparents. A sponsor certificate must be provided by each godparent who belongs to a different parish. The proper sponsor certificate for SSPP will be distributed at our preparation classes and may also be downloaded from our parish website. Christian witnesses are most welcome to celebrate with the family and community, but please note they are not recorded as sponsors on the baptismal certificate or in the baptismal register.

A life in harmony with the faith and the role to be undertaken means

Thank you for your cooperation and may Almighty God bless you and your family.

Further, in order to celebrate the sacrament of baptism licitly the priest must have a founded hope that the infant will be brought up in the Catholic religion; if such a hope is altogether lacking, the baptism is to be put off according to the prescription of the law and the parents are to be informed of the reason.”2 Please note that this is a direct quotation from the Code of Canon Law which is the universal law of the Roman Catholic Church. This well-founded hope is manifested not simply by the parents’ statements but also by their actions. The parents manifest this founded hope when they attend Mass regularly and seek an on-going relationship with the Church. 1 2

CIC 1983, canon 849. CIC 1983, canon 868,2.

Godparents When choosing godparents, it behooves the couple to be quite selective. The purpose of the godparent is to guide the child in the ways of the faith so that they might reach heaven. The Code of Canon Law explains that the godparent is one who “will help the baptized to lead a Christian life in harmony with baptism, and to fulfill faithfully the obligations connected with it.”
