May Almighty God bless you always. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

Focus on Marriage


Marriage: Love and Life In The Divine Plan:

We sincerely thank everyone for their contributions!

What Is Marriage?

For the new fiscal year, the weekly Sunday collection goal is $47,822.

“Marriage is a lifelong partnership of the whole of life, of mutual and exclusive fidelity, established by mutual consent between a man and a woman, and ordered towards the good of the spouses and the procreation of offspring.” To read the document go to

Would you like to be involved in a more hands-on way at SSPP? Are you someone who always attends the same Mass? Would you be willing to arrive 20-30 minutes before the start of Mass? We are looking for interested parishioners to assist in the setting up for Mass. You will learn how to choose the correct color of vestments for the priest, how to set up the Chalice and Ciboria for the celebration of Mass. If you are interested please call Pam Adamski at 630-355-0222 or e-mail

Over the next few weeks the Catholic Bishops of Illinois will be distributing four bulletin inserts to provide guidance and reflection points for Catholics exercising their right to vote in the upcoming 2012 election. This is the first of the four inserts and provides an introduction to the three inserts to follow in the coming weeks. These inserts are based on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) publication, Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship ( Additional information about specific policy issues addressed by your elected officials can be found on the Catholic Conference of Illinois (CCI) website at The CCI website will also have all the inserts posted as they are released. 1.

For the weeks of September 30 and October 7 we will write one insert about Conscience: What is conscience and what is its function? A conscience formed by our Catholic faith is needed to bring our moral principles to the debate about issues and candidates. However, we feel compelled to clarify the definition of a conscience because some cite their conscience as a justification for immoral public policy positions or support for a candidate whose positions conflict with the common good. Conscience is more than a “feeling.” Where there is moral clarity, conscience cannot be used to justify a contradictory ``public policy stance.


For the weeks of October 14 and 21 we will write one insert about the importance of evaluating a candidate’s position on public policy issues. The moral imperative to respond to the basic needs of our neighbors – such as food, shelter, health care, education, and meaningful work – is universally binding on our conscience, but may be legitimately fulfilled through a variety of means. Catholics should seek the best methods to respond to these needs. However, candidates who promise ways to address these important needs, yet at the same time gloss over their support for “intrinsically evil” actions such as abortion, will not receive the support of a person with a conscience well-formed by the Catholic faith or human reason.


Finally, on October 28 and November 4 we will conclude our series of statements with one insert that addresses our profound concern for religious liberty. If the current definition of “religious employer” proposed by the federal Department of Health and Human Services is allowed to stand, it could spread throughout federal and state law, diminish Catholic ministries throughout the nation, and most importantly, weaken a foundational respect for religious freedom and diversity that has stood since 1776.

The laity is a powerful voice in our nation and state. Our role as bishops is to call your attention to the trends and the issues that we believe are impacting the moral dimension of our society. We hope you will find this series of bulletin inserts educational and will reflect on their content. We also hope they will be helpful to you in discerning not only how to vote, but also in encouraging you to become further involved in promoting the common good in our state.

October is traditionally devoted to praying the Rosary in honor of our Blessed Mother. October 7th is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary which commemorates how, through Mary’s intercession (through masses of Catholics praying the Rosary), the Holy League (a Catholic Army) was able to hold back Muslim forces from overrunning Western Europe in the famous Battle of Lepanto. Today, secular forces threaten to overrun religious liberty in the United States through actions like the HHS Mandate. The Bishops of the United States have called all Catholics to join this battle through prayer and action.

St. Michael’s and Sts. Peter and Paul in Naperville have joined together in a goal to pray one million “Hail Marys” in the month of October. It will involve all parishioners and the schools. These prayers will be offered as a spiritual bouquet to the Blessed Mother asking for her intercession in the defense of religious liberty in the United States. Beginning October 1st, we ask YOU (and your family) to pray as many “Hail Marys” as you can every day. Each weekend, write down your Hail Mary count, for the week, and email it to Mike Brummond at Both parishes will tally their counts each week as we strive for our joint goal of One Million Hail Marys. If each parishioner prays 10 “Hail Marys” a day (one decade of the Rosary), we would easily reach our goal. Let’s make this another victory for Our Lady just like at the Battle of Lepanto. Please look for a flyer in the bulletin next week along with further announcements.

Mark you calendars for the next SUNDAY

DONUT SOCIAL! You are invited for coffee, donuts, and fellowship after the 9:30 and 11:00 Masses next Sunday, September 30. Please join us upstairs in the Ministry Center.

Did you know…. Childcare is available for children age 9 months to 5 years during the 9:30am and 1l:00am Sunday Masses in Room L-24 in the Ministry Center lower level. No reservations needed, first come, first serve. Questions? Call Donna Widmann at 630-7182165.

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:

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.

Cost is $7.00 for materials.

Dear Parishioners, The youth group has been busy during the month of September. Besides our weekly gatherings, the youth group has been assisting in the 8th grade Confirmation retreats. Our teens have been an inspiration and an asset for these powerful retreats. They have given of their time and provided our 8th graders with guidance and encouragement in their faith. I am very proud of them. At the end of September, the youth group is going on its Fall retreat. We are traveling to Shades State Park in Indiana. We will be camping out and enjoying the beginning of the autumn season. During our reatreat in Indiana, we will have talks, prayer, Mass, and times for the teens to have some fun. Please pray for a successful retreat. Youth group is every Monday and Thursday from 79pm. We have many upcoming events and trips. Please check the Parish website for the most current information.

Adoration Corner It was Pope Benedict XV who issued the first Code of Canon Law in 1917 which, among other things, encouraged the private and public exposition of the Holy Eucharist. Here are some of his quotes on the importance of Eucharistic Adoration in our lives: • •

Nothing is nearer to our hearts than devotion to the Holy Eucharist grow from day to day throughout the world. You must propagate veneration of the Most Blessed Sacrament with all your might, for the devotion to the Holy Eucharist is the queen of all devotions.
