Communication from the Bishop SPECIAL COLLECTION FOR DIOCESAN PRIESTS’ CARE & SUPPORT Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, On Father’s Day June 16, there will be a special collection to care for our infirm and retired priests. The money raised from this collection will go to the fund which provides long term care for our priests who need assisted living or skilled nursing care. Currently the diocese cares for seven of our retired priests who need these services. While we were blessed to ordain five young men to the priesthood on May 18, we have many more priests approaching retirement age. As such, there is a need to strengthen the fund that will provide for their care should they not be able to care for themselves. This collection should not be confused with the collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious, which is taken in December and assists religious men and women who belong to religious orders. That collection does not benefit or provide care for our retired diocesan priests. As we celebrate this Year of Faith, prayerfully consider making a donation to help our aged and sick priests as an expression of appreciation for all they have done to nourish your life of faith through their spiritual guidance and celebration of the sacraments. On behalf of all the active and retired priests of the diocese, I am grateful for your prayers and for your generous support of the Father’s Day Collection for our aged and infirm diocesan priests. Please be assured of my prayers for you. Sincerely yours in Christ, Most Reverend R. Daniel Conlon Bishop of Joliet

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

Josh will be offering a special Mass of Thanksgiving on Sunday, June 16th at 9:30 am in the Church. There will be a reception in the Ministry Center immediately after that Mass. Please come and thank Fr. Josh and wish him well. Fr. Josh has been assigned to St. Isidore in Bloomingdale starting Wednesday, June 19th.

Thank you! Thank you to our adoration chapel committee and all those who helped in so many ways to make our corpus Christi procession last Sunday a great success. A special thanks go out to Joe Bogusz and the Bogusz family who constructed the four altars pilgrimage altars out of solid oak. Priesthood anniversaries Our priests celebrate their anniversaries at the end of May and beginning of June. Please wish Fr. Josh Miller (June 5th), Fr. Mark Rosenbaum (June 2nd), Fr. Douglas Martis (June 3rd), Fr. Joseph Valentine (June 5th) and Fr. Rosimar Dias (May 12th) a blessed anniversary. Summer Projects The summer is now in full swing and you can notice that the construction projects in the Jr. High School have begun. The largest project is the installation of a new HVAC system costing approximately $1.1 million. This is the single largest portion of your “Pass It On” dollars at work. The installation of upgraded security measures at the school will also take place this summer including an (continued on next page)

The New Evangelization Bible Study – “Walking Toward Eternity” 8 part study, praying the scriptures focusing on key virtues of the Christian life. Monday nights 7-9 pm and Tuesday mornings 9-11 am beginning June 10th/11th. Cost of materials $20.00. To register contact Denise at or 630-718-2156. Applying the Faith to Your Life Walking Toward Eternity is a series of studies designed to help you make real and lasting changes in your life. Through a prayerful reading of Scripture, personal reflection, and a commitment to action, you will grow in faith and be given the means to put it into practice in your daily life. How Does It Work? Walking Toward Eternity combines devotional reading of Scripture (lectio divina), personal journaling, group discussion, video commentary, personal witness, and prayer. All of these components serve to illustrate what it means to be a Christian. You will discover how to live out your faith by turning to Scripture and the teachings of the Church, learning practical steps for living a life of holiness and virtue. Putting Your Faith Into Practice The most important part of these studies is the final step. You are asked to commit to making real changes in your life. Each session is concluded by turning to God in prayer with three simple questions: 1. “What is God placing his hand on in my life? 2. What does he want me to do about it? 3. And, when?”

Book discussion Group Pope Benedict’s “Spirit of the Liturgy.” Monday mornings 9-10 am starting June 10th. To register, contact Mike at or at 630-718-2154.

Walk in the Footsteps of the Missionaries of the Faith throughout the Ages! Have you ever wished you could significantly participate in the Church’s New Evangelization efforts, as promulgated by John Paull II, Benedict XVI, and now Pope Francis? Just as the First Century – and every century since – needed the apostles and missionaries of the Gospel to learn about the love and mercy of God, so does the Twenty First! Follow in the footsteps of our patron saints, Sts. Peter and Paul, and set out on a journey in this New Springtime of the Faith to be a modern day “missionary”… in Naperville! Perhaps our little corner of the world doesn’t sound as fascinating as Antionch or Iconium or Macedonia, but the people and their stories are. If you have a personal commitment, passion, and hunger for the Faith, the Catholic Church, and the Sacraments (pursuit of holiness, in other words); a good, basic knowledge of the Faith and teachings of the Church; willingness to witness the Faith with courage and gentleness; and a sense of humor and appreciation of life, join us in this ministry of visiting the families and members of your local Church, the SSPP Body of Christ. Share the most important thing in your life with others – your faith in Christ! You will be helping people to find their true home. Travel at your own pace, schedule, and comfort level. What have you got to lose? Almost no threat of shipwreck, stoning or imprisonment and so much to gain: your sanctification and that of your neighbors! Your evangelization will be a tremendous encouragement to all you meet (even if the seeds don’t sprout instantaneously) and to you. We invite you to an informational meeting and training session: Tuesday, June 18 7:00 p.m. St. Paul Center for the New Evangelization If you have questions prior to the meeting, please contact Will Marrero at or by phone at 312-362-5065. Please join us and discover the enduring joy and miracles of modern missionary work! “It was not you who chose me, says the Lord, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last.” (John 15:16)

DO YOUR ROSARIES NEED REPAIR? Drop them off at the Parish Office during regular office hours, tagged with your name and phone number. You’ll receive a call when the work has been completed.

The Saints Peter and Paul Peace and Social Justice Committee invites you to explore Catholic Relief Services’ microfinance operations. If you don’t know what it is, don’t worry. If you think you know what it is, hold that thought. As social justice topics go, microfinance is very trendy right now. Most people who have heard of it would describe it along these lines: “lending small amounts of money to poor people in lesser-developed countries so they can start or expand a small business.” While this description isn’t necessarily wrong, it is inadequate. Microfinance refers to financial products and services designed for the poor. That can include credit, savings, deposits, remittances or transfers, insurance, or anything else we might do with our money here in the first world. According to The Consultative Group to Assist the Poor, research has shown that more than half of the total adult population has “no access to the types of formal financial services delivered by regulated financial institutions wealthier people rely on.” Microfinance is aimed particularly at these people. Microfinance activities appear to have a positive impact on many other areas of development, so it’s no wonder microfinance institutions (MFIs) have received a lot of attention lately. The Grameen Bank and its founder, Muhammad Yunus, received a Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for their work in microfinance, particularly microcredit (which may be one reason why credit and loans are the most well-known aspect of microfinance). However, loans are not always a good option, and MFIs are often inaccessible to the poorest of the poor and/or those who live in rural areas. Catholic Relief Services has over 20 years of involvement in microfinance, including successful work with MFIs. While this is still an important part of their microfinance work, CRS saw the need for a more holistic approach to microfinance that can be tailored to fit the needs of any population, no matter how poor or remote. That’s why CRS developed Savings and Internal Lending Communities (SILC). As CRS president and CEO Carolyn Y. Woo recently told, “The whole idea is no matter how poor you are, if we gather people, like 20 or 30 people together, and every week or month consistently they give whatever they can—even if it is 25 cents or 50 cents—then together they would be able to have a pool of money and they could take turns accessing it.” Pooling resources in order to make best use of them is not a new idea. However, CRS has provided the innovation to bring this model to more people, with maximum impact. Here’s a simplified version of how SILC generally works: (1) a CRS-trained field agent helps a group select and form itself, (2) the field agent provides group members with training, (3) members begin saving and contributing to the fund, (4) once funds are sufficient, members can take out loans and use the funds to grow businesses, (5) borrowing members repay their loans with interest, (6) at the end of the cycle (often 6 to 12 months), members receive their original savings contribution, plus the profits earned on that amount, (7) the saving and lending cycle starts again. After about one year or one cycle, CRS steps back and the SILC group (thanks to the initial training and oversight provided by CRS) is entirely self-sufficient and self-governed. Because the groups are self-selected, self-owned and self-governed, there are variations from group to group. Some groups meet more frequently than others. Some groups choose to have minimum and maximum deposit amounts. While the I in SILC stands for internal, groups can choose to lend outside the circle as another way to grow the fund. Furthermore, many groups have a social fund which acts as a sort of safety net in case of emergencies, providing a kind of insurance to those for whom formal insurance plans are either inaccessible or unaffordable. One interesting detail is that most groups keep funds and ledgers in a box with three padlocks on it. The treasurer keeps the box, but three other members each keep a key, so it takes four people to unlock the box. After about seven years of SILC programming, CRS is celebrating over one million members served in 35 countries, a vast majority of which are in Africa. While the program is open to both genders, about 80 to 90 percent of SILC members are women, and the program has worked well for them. The annual return on investment for SILC members has been between 25 and 40 percent (jealous?). It’s one thing to put more money in people’s pockets, but how does that money help people live better lives? For the most vulnerable members, SILC enables them simply to feed their families a sufficient amount of food on a regular basis. SILC activities also help members pay school fees and health care costs, meet the challenges of HIV and AIDS, support and protect orphans and vulnerable children (some of whom are members themselves), resist human trafficking, re-integrate with their communities following regional conflict, and improve their quality of life in a host of other ways. Because SILC activities can help tackle so many important development issues, CRS has integrated them with many other areas of programming. The nonfinancial benefits of SILC may be just as important as the financial ones. Members often cite mutual support and encouragement as their favorite things about SILC. Being able to rely on one another for nonfinancial help provides members with an added sense of security. Training and experience managing money build confidence, and members often pass their skills on to their children. Regular group meetings make SILC a good platform to raise awareness of important issues, and the social capital members gain through SILC has made them agents of positive change in their community. Nothing succeeds like success, and demand for SILC has grown so large that CRS and its partners can’t afford to pay field agents to provide training and support to everyone who wants to form a group. In order to meet this demand, CRS has developed the Private Service Provider (continued on next page)

(PSP) model. CRS provides intensive training and certification to local field officers, who often come from SILC groups. Those field officers, called Private Service Providers, can then offer their services to help form new SILC groups, or provide technical support to existing groups. Since groups are willing to pay for this support, the PSPs earn money for their work. They can also take on apprentices who can then be trained and certified as PSPs as well. As Woo told, “We’re actually creating new opportunities for people. It’s passing on to others so that the work can grow beyond CRS.” SILC is also leading to further microfinance innovation. Members in Benin asked for a better way to manage health costs, beyond what their social funds covered. Insurance is one of the trickiest financial products to make work, but CRS and their partners created a health microinsurance (HMI) product for these members. The product was launched last year, and although some challenges have presented themselves, the initial feedback from subscribers was generally positive, including improved access to health care and ability to follow prescribed treatments. Of course, we can only scratch the surface here. More information, and stories of individuals who have benefited from SILC and CRS’ microfinance operations are available at The Catholic Relief Services and CRS Technical Productions YouTube channels have several illuminating videos about SILC and SILC members. A SILC member featured in one video provides the perfect takehome message: “SILC has the love of uniting people.” That’s success.

Vocation Reflections from Parents Can my son be happy living a priest's life? If his happiness right now is any indication for the future, I have no doubt that Jim will be happy as a priest! I am often asked if I am worried he will be lonely, or if I'm saddened by the fact that he won't have a family. I think initially I mourned the thought of his not marrying and having children, but as I have watched him in this journey, I realized that he will have the opportunity to be a father to many. He taught Totus Tuus the last three summers and had the privilege to meet so many wonderful families and friends within our diocese. Witnessing how the seminarians are welcomed and loved by so many in these parishes helped me realize that while he won't have the traditional type family, he will be surrounded by a spiritual family that will welcome and love him. There is also a tremendous bond between the seminarians and I find great comfort in that. They alone understand what they are each going through, and are wonderful sources of friendship and support for each other. And finally, he has his family. We understand his life will be incredibly busy, but he knows that we, his parents and his sisters, will be there to support and love him always.
