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

Christians in the Middle East Several weeks ago, I mentioned in one of my homilies the plight of Christians in the Mid-East. I mentioned that we, as a parish, would be helping to address this issue in a concrete way and in a way personal to our own community. There are members of our parish who grew up in Iraq and other countries in the Mid-East and who still have family there. One of our parishioners, in fact, has a sister, brother-in-law and two nieces who are refugees having been forced to leave Iraq, because they are Catholic Christians. Worse still, one of her nieces was recently diagnosed with cancer and was able to find treatment in Lebanon, but they need financial assistance. We will be holding a fundraiser at our parish on the evening of Tuesday, July 23rd. We will have hors d’oeuvres, refreshments and presentations about the situation in the Middle East and our parishioner’s particular situation and how you might be able to help. If you are interested in attending or would like more information, please contact the parish office and let us know that you are coming so that we can make the proper arrangements. If you cannot attend but would like more information, please let us know.

May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

ATTENTION READERS, ALTAR SERVERS, AND EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS It is time to begin preparing the ministry schedule for the months of September, October, and November. If you would like to update your Mass preferences or if there are any days that you are unavailable to serve between September 1st and November 30th, please enter that information in the “My Profile” section of the Ministry Scheduler Website by FRIDAY, AUGUST 9th. Also, under the My Profile tab, you may add a “second preference” for your Mass time. This is not necessary, but it would help a lot if you are able to be flexible. If you have forgotten your login information, please email Deacon Michael at and he will send you the information. As usual, if you do not have computer access you may drop off your written requests at the parish office, or call Deacon Michael at 630-718-2197 by Friday, August 9th.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Masses in the Holy Family Chapel on Sunday, July 28th; Sunday, August 4th; and Sunday, August 11th.

If you love children and enjoy spending time with them, the Nursery has a part time position for you! The Nursery is looking for an individual (21 years of age or older) to work during the 9:30am and 11:00am Mass on Sundays. Qualified applicants must have completed “Protecting God’s Children.” Please contact Donna Widmann, Nursery Coordinator at 630718-2165 to discuss this opportunity and apply.

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 or call 630-414-4641.

Attention Parishioners and Visitors Please consider spending an hour with our Lord. Adorers are needed for the following hour:

Become an Altar Server! It is not too late! Remaining Training Sessions in the Church: July 25th @ 2:30pm August 5th @ 7:00pm August 16th @ 11:00am August 19th@ 7:00pm Potential servers need to attend 3 of the 4 remaining sessions No need to register, just show up Grades 4 and up are eligible (grade as of Fall 2013) 1 Hour sessions It is a great investment in the faith of your children! When this is what is happening at every Mass why would we not want to serve at the altar? Questions or comments please call Fr. Lovitsch @ (630) 718-2104 The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed

Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch. The Eucharist is the efficacious sign and sublime cause of that communion in the divine life and that unity of the People of God by which the Church is kept in being. It is the culmination both of God’s action sanctifying the world in Christ and of the worship men offer to Christ and through him to the Father in the Holy Spirit. Finally, by the Eucharistic celebration we already unite ourselves with the heavenly liturgy and anticipate eternal life, when God will be all in all. In brief, the Eucharist is the sum and summary of our faith: “Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist in turn confirms our way of thinking.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1324–7)

The New Evangelization Liturgy Series Continues! Join us 7pm in the Social Hall on Tuesday, July 23rd as Matthew Sprinkle presents “What is Sacred Music?” Check out video of past presentations on the Fisherman’s Net:

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 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 marriage preparation: catechesis in the theology of marriage 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 marriage—including a clear and pastoral explanation of the “difficult teachings”—they come away with a sense of liberation and gratitude toward the Church.”

Come for a preview Tuesday, August 27th from 9:30-11:00 in the Social Hall. See the curriculum and meet instructors and past students.

You will leave this presentation with clarity, a sense of balance, hope and a heightened awareness of a bigger vision for your life. Bring your spouse as this will bring these benefits to both of you and is our way of gifting you during this summer season!
