Communication from the Bishop Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Catholics in Latin America and the Caribbean face many challenges when it comes to sharing their faith; yet the light always shines through and hope arises. For example, in the Diocese of San Miguel, El Salvador, the youth of Holy Family Parish are at high risk for violence and gang activity. In response, the parish designed a youth enrichment and leadership program to address young people’s need for critical-thinking skills and values education. The parish hopes to help the youth living in these high-vulnerability areas create a culture of solidarity and peace within their neighborhoods. The parish currently engages a group of 75 young adults. They will become youth leaders to spread the gospel message in their neighborhoods and break the cycle of violence. In Ecuador, the Diocese of Loja organized a three-day formation program for their catechists, many of whom work in isolated areas. More than 2,500 catechists gathered from around the diocese to participate in training sessions on rural ministry, bible instruction, and other areas of catechesis. One of the participants, Andrea, said that the experience was informative and enriching and that the catechists were able to meet each other and share their diverse experiences. She said that the sessions fortified her spirit so that she can go back to her ministry in the parish and better serve the people in the diocese. The Collection for the Church in Latin America, through projects like these youth and young adult ministry programs, as well as catechesis programs, empowers the faithful of Latin America to deepen their faith and share it with each other and the world. Our diocese takes up this Collection the weekend of January 25-26, 2014. Please be generous in this Collection and take this opportunity to share your faith with the youth of Latin America and the Caribbean. Your support will truly make a difference. Thank you and God bless you. Sincerely yours in Christ, Most Reverend R. Daniel Conlon Bishop of Joliet For more information on the Church in Latin America and the projects funded by the Collection, please visit www.usccb.org (search “Church in Latin America Collection Resources”).

A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners, Frank Glowaty - Our Beloved Principal Frank Glowaty has served as principal of SS. Peter and Paul School for nearly 38 years and has served with exemplary distinction. When Mr. Glowaty arrived at our school in 1975, our parish school was experiencing declining enrollment and serious consideration was being given to closing the school. Since that time Mr. Glowaty has provided the leadership which has built this school not only into the largest in the Diocese of Joliet but also well respected for the quality of education that it imparts as well as the Catholic values it instills. Shortly before Christmas, Mr. Glowaty mentioned to me that he thought it was time to retire from his responsibilities as principal as of July 1, 2014. Mr. Glowaty will remain with us continuing to exercise leadership in the area of Advancement (Development) and so will be able to help guide the new principal, whoever that might be, with his wealth of knowledge of our community, experience as an educator and wisdom gained through the years. SS. Peter and Paul School will be eternally grateful for the sacrifice and love he has contributed to the school and so we will be in contact in the near future for the thanksgiving celebrations the parish and school will be offering to him. A search firm was vetted by the Catholic Schools Office of the Diocese of Joliet, our school board president, finance manager, school principal, a lawyer who is a school parent and myself. We have hired this firm to guide a national search and help our (continued on next page)

search committee and myself make this important decision for our school. The search team has been formed including the Superintendant of schools, a principal from another school in the Diocese, a former teacher from our parish school, a past school parent and members of our school board all with professional and management experience. Why is the Christmas creche' still up? The Christmas creche' is left up at SS. Peter and Paul through the Presentation of the Lord as is Catholic tradition. Service Dog We have several parishioners that require the assistance of a service dog for medical reasons. Please know that these parishioners have been given permission to have this dog in the church during Mass and will be seated near the front on either the right or left side. We do not normally permit animals in church for obvious reasons; however, I hope it is obvious to the other Christians in Church that this is an extenuating circumstance. Interior Foyer Doors in Ministry Center New doors have been installed at the entrance of the ministry center so that the interior of the building can be locked as a measure to protect our children who are in the building either during the hours of Religious Education or when the children of our parish school are having an event in the building. If you find that the doors are locked during a certain portion of the day, simply stop in the parish or religious education office and they will be glad to let you enter. Thank you for your understanding of the importance to protect the children under our care. Any inconvenience should be minimal. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

I’m the father of two and my oldest daughter just started high school this fall after graduating from Saints Peter and Paul School. While we were very confident that she would do well, my wife and I were naturally also a little apprehensive for her. Those fears were quickly set aside when I met her teachers. They told me she had excellent study skills, was very well prepared for her subjects and was being placed in AP classes in Math, Literature, Spanish and Biology. She works hard to maintain Honor Roll status but the transition has been seamless because of the foundation she had at Saints Peter and Paul School. As for friends, that was a breeze. Her strength, her self-confidence, her people skills, leadership traits and ease of “fitting-in” all came from her years at Saints Peter and Paul School.

The March for Life Chicago is an annual public event composed of people from diverse ethnic, social, and religious backgrounds dedicated to defending & protecting all human life. On January 19, 2014, we will march in hope with Chicagoans from every walk of life under one goal: to end abortion. Sunday, January 19 from 1:00 - 3:00 pm We will start at Federal Plaza (50 W Adams, Chicago) + Rally & Speakers! and end at theState of Illinois Building (100 W Randolph, Chicago) + Celebration of Life! Life is too precious to sit this one out. For more information about the March for Life of Chicago visit www.marchforlifechicago.com. If you cannot attend the March for Life in Washington, this is a wonderful opportunity to show you are pro-life and that Chicago is a pro- life city! Join the many, many pro-lifers who reside in our city on the March for Life Chicago.



Mass for Life: Here at SSPP, please join us at our Life Mass on the anniversary of Roe v Wade, January 22nd at the 5:15 mass. If you didn't have a chance to attend last year, don't miss this quiet reverent mass to remember all the lives lost through abortion in the last 41 years. Father Milota, will be celebrating this mass, and he does such a beautiful job remembering this day of sorrow. There is also a Rosary for Life planned at 1:30PM in the Holy Family Chapel on January 22nd. This is a wonderful way to spend some quiet time, in a beautiful setting with fellow pro-lifers.



Annual Interdenominational Prayer Service for Life: Each year we recall the Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade, remembering the victims and praying for an end to the tragedy. This January 22 marks the 41st anniversary of legal abortion-ondemand throughout our country. It is estimated that since Roe, over 55 million pre-born babies have lost their lives by abortion. It is our hope that in this year, we will be able to encourage many members of our local pro-life congregations to attend the Annual Interdenominational Prayer Service for Life. The service will be held at New Covenant Church on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. All are warmly invited.

Advocacy: Conscience Protection Legislation Still Needed: The Obama Administration's contraceptive/abortifacient/sterilization mandate begins to be enforced against nonprofit religious schools, charities and health care providers on January 1, 2014. It is more pressing than ever that rights of conscience and religious liberty be protected in law. Congress must address this problem without delay. Members should again be urged to co-sponsor the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (H.R. 940. S. 1204) and work for its approval as part of 'must-pass' bills or other legislation. Last fall, Congress passed a Continuing Appropriations bill, which resumed government funding on a temporary basis. Congress has until January 15 to pass an Omnibus Appropriations bill for fiscal year 2014 or again to extend the government's authority to spend money on a temporary basis.

PRAYING FOR THE SICK AND DECEASED

Please remember in your prayers, the following people who are seriously ill and others who are suffering with long-term or terminal illnesses:

Please note that if you wish to have a family member or friend’s name included with the petition for the sick which is read at weekend Masses, you must call the parish office by 2 PM on Friday. Your loved one’s name will automatically be added into the sick list in the bulletin the following weekend. If you add a loved one’s name to the petition when you come to Mass, please follow up with a phone call to the parish office on Monday so the name may be included with the sick list in the bulletin. In the interest of keeping our sick list current, the first weekend in February we will remove names put on prior to January 1st, unless we hear from you or a family member that you wish a name to remain on the list. Call the Office, 630-355-1081, to add, remove or keep a name on the sick list. Any names received after 2 PM on Friday will be included in the following weekend’s prayers. Deceased loved ones who are buried from SS. Peter and Paul Parish are automatically named in the bulletin and in the petition read at weekend Masses. Other recently deceased loved ones may be added to the petitions by calling the parish office by 2 PM on Friday.
