A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners of Saints Peter and Paul Parish,

Holy Family Chapel Work One of the aspects of “Pass It On” was the purchase of new flooring for the Holy Family Chapel and painting the Holy Family Chapel. We hope to be able to complete all of this work between July 22nd through August 16th. This means that there will be no Masses in the Holy Family Chapel on Sunday, July 28th; Sunday, August 4th; and Sunday, August 11th. Several years ago, the parish had discussed some changes to the Holy Family Chapel and we solicited your input. There was a desire to maintain the bright warm feel of the Holy Family Chapel. Acknowledging this desire, the Holy Family Chapel and her appointments are more than 15 years old. Although the carpeting has held up amazingly well considering the amount of traffic it has received, the reality is that I don’t think we want to wait until that carpeting is threadbare to replace it. Further, the Holy Family Chapel is in need of a paint job and new flooring. The new flooring will be a combination of warm bright earth tone ceramic tile in the aisles and sanctuary (high traffic areas) and warm earth tone carpeting in all the other areas of the chapel. The tile will not only look nice, but it will also be much more durable and more easily cleaned. The paint color will not be identical to the color presently in the chapel, but it was chosen to reflect that same warm feel coordinating with the tile, carpeting and woodwork in the Chapel. Although the structure of the Holy Family Chapel will remain substantially the same, we will be making several minor upgrades to the Holy Family Chapel. We will be upgrading the lighting in the sanctuary portion of the chapel, removing the lights directly above the altar and relocating those to the ceiling. This will create a better aesthetic feel to the altar area. We will also be turning three of the four storage closets in the rear of the chapel into confessionals. We presently hear confessions in the chapel twice a week and numerous times during the year for the children in our Religious Education program. This will also give us the option of moving confessions into the Holy Family Chapel, when the Church is being used for other events. We will also be refurbishing the tabernacle and building a pedestal which matches the rest of the altar appointments in the chapel to make the look and feel of the Chapel more consistent. Finally, we will make the small open areas on each side of the altar into niches for the statue of the Blessed Mother which is already in the chapel and we will be adding a statue of St. Joseph of the same style as that of the statue of the Blessed Mother. The statue of our Blessed Mother has been repaired and restored, but she was restored to look as close to her original style. The seats in the Holy Family Chapel will remain the same for the time being. Although there will be a newness to the Holy Family Chapel, I hope that you will see that we have tried hard to respect the desires of warmth, brightness and simplicity you expressed while also making some improvements that will assist us better to worship. Thank you for your patience as we complete the work in the Holy Family Chapel at the end of July and beginning of August. May Almighty God bless you and keep you.

In Christ,

 

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

Dear Father Milota, Deb Scanlon, the Respect Life Committee and parishioners of Sts Peter and Paul, Our team at Waterleaf Women’s Center is so very grateful to be the recipient of the nearly $9,000 in proceeds of your recent baby bottle drive! The continuous outpouring of generosity from your parish is always humbling to us and inspires us to persevere in our work to minister to the hundreds of men and women who walk through our doors. Over the nearly four years since we opened, we have been blessed to assist those facing an unplanned pregnancy and to help heal those who have chosen abortion in the past. We have celebrated more than 140 births and have evidence of 51 babies “saved” from abortion (though we suspect there are many more known only to God). Just two weeks ago, a client came to us thinking she was at Planned Parenthood for her abortion. When she witnessed the ultrasound image of her baby, tears streamed down her face and she told us she believed God had sent her to us instead. We were motivated not only by the need to protect her innocent baby but to prevent her from experiencing the devastating effects of abortion we witness often in our post-abortive ministry. Your generous support will allow us to continue our work and to expand our outreach shortly through the addition of STI testing. Please continue to pray for us as we pray in thanksgiving for you! In faith and gratitude, The Board, staff, and volunteers of Waterleaf Women’s Center

Standing Together for Religious Freedom An Open Letter to all Americans

We write as an informal and diverse group of religious leaders, theologians, lay practitioners and community servants. We believe the doctrines of our respective faiths require something of us beyond the walls of our churches, synagogues, temples, and other places of worship. Those faith convictions manifest themselves through our daily interactions among family, neighbors, strangers and institutions. Further, we recognize the United States, at its best, is unique among the nations of the world when it defends the self-evident freedom of all people to exercise their faith according to the dictates of their consciences. This freedom contributes to the vibrancy of our nation. Unfortunately, this delicate liberty of conscience is under threat. Through its contraceptive coverage mandate, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) continues to breach universal principles affirmed and protected by the U.S. Constitution and other federal laws. While the mandate is a specific offense, it represents a greater fundamental breach of conscience by the federal government. Very simply, HHS is forcing Citizen A, against his or her moral convictions, to purchase a product for Citizen B. The HHS policy is coercive and puts the administration in the position of defining -or casting aside- religious doctrine. This should trouble every American. Many of the signatories on this letter do not hold doctrinal objections to the use of contraception. Yet we stand united in protest to this mandate, recognizing the encroachment on the conscience of our fellow citizens. Whether or not we agree with the particular conscientious objection is beside the point. HHS continues to deny many Americans the freedom to manifest their beliefs through practice and observance in their daily lives. The First Amendment states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." Free exercise includes the freedom to order one's life, liberties and pursuits in accordance with his or her convictions. HHS breaches the free exercise clause and federal statutes (passed with broad bipartisan support) by selectively denying some Americans this constitutionally protected right. Americans afford each other broad liberties with respect to lifestyle choices. However, the federal government has neither a compelling interest nor the appropriate authority to coerce one citizen to fund or facilitate specific lifestyle choices of another. If the federal government can force morally opposed individuals to purchase contraception or abortion-causing drugs and devices for a third party, what prevents this or future administrations from forcing other Americans to betray their deeply held convictions? Therefore, we call upon HHS to, at a minimum, expand conscience protections under the mandate to cover any organization or individual that has religious or moral objections to covering, providing or enabling access to the mandated drugs and services. Further, because HHS claims to be acting on authority granted it by Congress, we ask Congress to consider how it might prevent such offenses from occurring in the future. Any policy that falls short of affirming full religious freedom protection for all Americans is unacceptable. Signed: The Most Rev. William E.

Have you ever wanted to be a part of a missionary experience? My name is Margaret Ascenzo. I graduated from college this year and have been blessed with the opportunity to spend a year serving in the Philippines. Through educational outreach, I will be helping young people in extreme poverty develop professional and practical skills. I am inviting you to support me with your prayers and, if you are able, to donate any amount to help defray the cost of my mission. I am volunteering with Fidesco, a Catholic nonprofit organization which has 200 missionaries in 35 different countries around the world. While Fidesco receives a small portion of its funds from the French government, 70% of the cost depends upon the generosity of donors. I am grateful for any amount, however if you can contribute $20 per month (or the equivalent in a single donation) you will receive my mission reports to see what your contribution has made possible. All donations are fully tax deductible. For more information on how to make a donation or join as a volunteer, contact Margaret Ascenzo at margaret.ascenzo@my.avemaria.edu or call (630) 414-4641.

Prayer at Planned Parenthood The SS. Peter and Paul Pro-Life Group invites all members of the parish, friends, relatives, etc., to join them to pray in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Aurora.

Here are a few ways you can join us: 1) Every Tuesday at 2PM a priest or deacon from SSPP prays the Rosary (no sign-up is necessary) 2) Every third Tuesday of the month at 10AM (next date on July 16th) the SSPP pro-life prayer group meets to pray the Rosary (no sign up is necessary). Contact Debbie Scanlon, Ss. Peter and Paul parish Coordinator for more information at 630-305-8724. 3) Volunteers are needed for one hour shifts between the hours of 8AM-5:00PM (5-6PM being the last hour) to fulfill our parish commitment to pray in front of the clinic on the third Tuesday of each month. Please sign up for one hour at the website www.fvfapp.org. Please contact our Prayer Captain Marty DeTamble with any questions at 630-369-4535. The Planned Parenthood facility is located at 3051 E.

The intentions will be published in the bulletin.

Flame of Faith intentions for the week of July 14: The seven Day Devotional Candles, at the altar of our Lord, in the Saint Francis Adoration Chapel, are being offered for the following intentions:

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.

Please Pray For... PRAY FOR THE SICK

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 August we will remove names put on prior to July 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.

The New Evangelization Liturgy Series Continues! Join us 7pm in the Social Hall for these events: • Tuesday, July 16th – Mike Brummond, “Why Sacraments?” • Tuesday, July 23rd – Matthew Sprinkle, “What is Sacred Music?” God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage This Fall, the Ss. Peter and Paul Pre-Cana program will be expanding to use “God’s Plan for a Joy Filled Marriage,” a set of presentations for engaged couples focusing on Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. Later this Summer, we’ll be offering an open session of the presentations for any engaged or married couples at the parish. 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 mbrummond@sspeterandpaul.net or 630-718-2154. “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 key component of preparation for Holy Matrimony: 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 engaged 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 scholar of the law answered “The one who treated him with mercy.” Jesus then said, “Go and do likewise.” This week you also “treat the poor with mercy” when you place a donation in the green envelopes found in the rear of the church or chapel. Our Vincentian help to respond to calls from those in need is only possible through your continued generous support, and on their behalf, we thank you. We may be contacted at 630-355-1081.
