A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners, Congratulations to our new deacons and their families Kevin Neis, Will Marrero and Tom Rehak were ordained to the permanent diaconate on Saturday morning. Deacon Rehak will assist at his first Mass as a deacon Saturday evening at the 5 pm Mass and Deacon Neis and Deacon Marrero will be assisting at the 9:30 am Mass on Sunday morning. Please stop after the 9:30 AM Mass for a reception to celebrate their ordination and thank them for answering the Lord’s call. We offer our prayers of thanksgiving to our new deacons and their families who also make a sacrifice in service to the Lord.

Holy Family Chapel The Holy Family Chapel work is substantially finished and we are glad to be able to be back worshipping in that space. •

The fresh look of the chapel keeps all of the principal elements which were already in the chapel. For example, the crucifix, altar, ambo, presidential chair, baptismal font stand, statue of the Blessed Mother and 7 sorrows of Mary mosaics are all elements which we have always possessed and central elements of the chapel. Even the tabernacle is the same – it was just polished up so it looks nicer. Although the colors of the walls and floors have changed, the colors were chosen in order to preserve the warm feel of the chapel which was one of the priorities offered by many parishioners when given the opportunity at the town hall some time ago. The fresh look is highlighted by taking Mary out of her corner and placing her closer to the altar and the addition of St. Joseph for you dads. We also utilized three storage closets in the back and fitted them out as confessionals to allow for more flexibility in scheduling locations for confessions whether school, RE or general parish confessions, and fewer conflicts with the Church facility. Most of the other changes involved relocating already existing elements in a way that gives them their due, e.g., the crucifix was taken from below the niche and placed above the altar, the tabernacle was placed behind the main altar and the 7 sorrows were put directly above the main exit door. We also removed the large rack of lights above the altar and relocated those above the ceiling. Please notice that the same two wires that held up those rack lights were used to suspend the cross above the altar. We also added some warm decorative tile in the high traffic areas which looks nice while allowing for easier maintenance and extending the life of the carpeting under the chairs. Finally, we upgraded the window sills to the same color oak as the rest of the woodwork in the Holy Family Chapel.

I offer a special thanks for the advice and work of our Holy Family Chapel committee and for the support of our parishioners through “Pass It On” which paid for the carpeting, tile and paint.

Bishop Siegel Visiting Because the work in the Chapel was minor and it was already consecrated as the “Holy Family Chapel” by Bishop Imesch more than 15 years ago, we do not re-consecrate the Chapel; however, Bishop Siegel will be coming to the parish to bless the new elements of the Holy Family Chapel like the confessionals and St. Joseph statue and all present at the 11 am Chapel Mass on September 15th. Please join us for a special celebration at that Mass with a reception to follow.

Back to School Our parish School starts this week! It is hard to believe that the summer has flown by so quickly. Our college students have returned to college and most schools in town will start this week or next. Let us keep all of our students in our prayers that this be a truly blessed and fruitful year. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

The New Evangelization God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage – August 29th and September 5th “God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a study based on Blessed John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. The program is a catechesis in the theology of Holy Matrimony and the gift of human sexuality. This program provides couples with a rich understanding of the teachings of the Church and offers them the tools to live them out in married life. When couples understand God’s plan for Holy Matrimony—including a clear and pastoral explanation of the “difficult teachings”—they come away with a sense of liberation and gratitude toward the Church.” The sessions, originally designed for engaged couples, are open to all engaged or married couples. The sessions extend two Thursday evenings, August 29th and September 5th from 6:00-9:30pm. The cost of the sessions is $30 per couple for materials. For more information, or to register, contact Mike at or 630-718-2154.

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 closing 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 10th, and run Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 through the Easter season. Contact Mike for more details at 630-718-2154 or

You will also learn what all the mysterious figures and images of Revelation represent, as well as what will happen during the Second Coming of Christ, what has already happened, and what is happening now in salvation history.” 10 part series.

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. Tuesday nights 7:30-9:00 pm in the Ministry Center Social Hall beginning September 10th. No fees. If you’re interested in joining us, an RSVP to Mike Brummond is appreciated at 630-718-2154 or

Saint Lawrence - Deacon and Martyr St Lawrence was born in Huesca, Spain around the year 225. He traveled to Rome in order to serve Pope Saint Sixtus II. In the year 257 he was ordained a deacon. He was one of seven deacons assigned to Rome. He was placed in charge of the administration of Church goods and care for the poor. When a period of Christian persecution broke out, Pope St. Sixtus II (Elected August 31, 257 – Died on August 6, 258) was condemned to death by the Roman Emperor Valerian. As the Pope was led off to his execution, Lawrence followed him weeping, "Father, where are you going without your deacon?" The Pope responded and said, "I am not leaving you, my son. In three days you will follow me." Full of joy, Lawrence returned to the local church and immediately gave any money that the church had in its coffers to the poor. He also sold off all of the church’s expensive vessels and garments in turn, giving the proceeds from the sale to the poor, the sick, the elderly, the widowed and the orphaned. The Emperor Valerian was a very greedy pagan. He knew that the Church had great treasures. So he ordered Lawrence to bring the Church's treasure to him. Lawrence said he would do so, in three days. Then he went through the city and gathered together all the poor and sick people supported by the Church. He brought them all before the emperor and said, "This is the treasure of the Church!" On August 10th, as predicted by Pope Sixtus, Valerian condemned Lawrence to a slow, cruel, torturous death. Lawrence was tied on top of an iron grill and he was roasted alive over a bed of glowing hot coals. However, Lawrence was burning with so much love of Christ that he almost did not feel the flames. In fact, God gave him so much strength and joy that he even joked with his persecutors. "Turn me over," he said to the executioner. "I'm done on this side!" Then he prayed that the city of Rome might be converted to Jesus and that the Catholic Faith might spread all over the world. And just before he died he said, "It's cooked enough now, you may eat." At that moment he went on to receive his martyr's reward in Heaven. His remains are buried in the cemetery of Cyriaca in the Campo Verano on the Via Tiburtina (on the way to Tivoli), on the site of what is now the Church of Saint Lawrence-outside-the-Walls. The gridiron on which he was martyred is encased beneath an altar and is displayed in The Church of St Lawrence (San Lorenzo) in Lucina, Italy. His Feast day is August 10th.

T H M SAINTS PETER AND PAUL TRANSITIONAL HOUSING MINISTRY Saints Peter & Paul Transitional Housing Ministry, in partnership with Bridge Communities, has been helping homeless families with dependent children since 1992. The ministry provides an opportunity to move a family toward selfsufficiency by providing 2 years of temporary housing, mentoring, employment counseling and other supportive services. During those 2 years each family has stable housing, life-skills mentoring, job training and other services as needed. Donations in the pink offering envelopes from SSPP parishioners provide rent and utilities for our 4 apartments. Volunteer mentors are the most vital part of this ministry. Over the years more than 75 parishioners have served as mentors. A team of 3 mentors works directly with each family meeting frequently to establish budgets, review spending, debt reduction, family issues, job search/training and school issues/tutoring. Goals are reviewed on a quarterly basis. The ultimate goal is to position each family to have stability, adequate employment, and favorable credit to qualify for permanent housing upon leaving the program. This ministry needs women and men as future mentors. Mentors are people like you who were taught good life skills & would like to help teach them to someone not as fortunate. On Monday, August 19, at 7:00 pm in room L-23 of the Ministry Center, an educational-only presentation is scheduled to discuss the ministry and answer any questions. You will not be expected to make any commitment at this meeting. If at that time you are interested in learning more, mentor training classes will be available to help people make the decision about how they might become involved in our ministry For additional information, call Jack Flowers at 630-355-4886. This is a wonderful opportunity to better understand your view of the world in light of the view of others. All are welcome.
