Easter Sunday

A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners of Saints Peter and Paul, Our Lord is truly risen! Praised be Jesus Christ! We celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord and His conquering of sin and death on this glorious day. Our Lord’s Resurrection from the dead has made possible eternal life and the Resurrection of all the dead on the last day. Although this may seem incredible in a world that occupies so much of our time and thought and energy, it is true. Still, this great gift does require something of us as well. It also requires that our heart and mind be focused on this goal...that we be willing to make the sacrifice of love in every aspect of our lives including worshipping Him each Sunday and Holy Day; being faithful to one’s spouse and one’s family; being generous to the poor and those in need; living lives of virtue...honesty, integrity, justice, courage, faith and hope and love. This year has been quite a year. There have been tough times but also events in which to rejoice. The Holy Spirit has chosen a wonderful man as our Pope, Pope Francis. His simplicity, humility, generosity and concern for others especially the poor has already made an impact on so many of us. Let us continue to pray for our Holy Father, the Pope, and our Church. Bells One joyous event has been the restoration of our historic and new bells into our bell tower. You are hearing them ring before all of the Masses this weekend. Each time they ring, let us say a prayer for our community and people around the world that the loving voice of the Lord will be heard in every heart and call us to worship our Loving Father in heaven. In honor of our new bells, a beautiful full-color commemorative booklet has been put together including photos, history and prayers to accompany our bells. These are being sold after the Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday as well as the 9:30 am and 11 am Masses today. May Almighty God bless you and keep you this Easter and always. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

In observance of the Sacred Triduum and Easter, please note that all parish offices will be closed Thursday, March 28th through Monday, April 1st. Regular office hours will resume on Tuesday, April 2nd, at 9:00 am.

12:30 Mass 1:30 Confessions 3:00 Chaplet of Divine Mercy led by Fr. Gregor Gorsic Benediction follows Pope Francis from the parish church of St. Anne: “ The message of Jesus is mercy. For me, I say this humbly, it is the Lord’s most powerful message.” The first and only step required to get an experience of mercy, Pope Francis explained, is to recognize that we are in need of mercy. "Jesus has come for us, when we recognize that we are sinners," he said. It is enough not to copy the Pharisee who, standing before the altar, thanked God for not being "like all the other men." If we're like that Pharisee, if we believe we are righteous, then we do not know the heart of the Lord, and we shall not ever have the joy of feeling this mercy!" Those accustomed to judging others, to feeling at peace, to considering themselves righteous and good, do not feel the need to be embraced and forgiven. And instead, there are some who feel it, but think they are irredeemable, because of too many bad actions. “God never tires of accepting and forgiving, if only we can recognize that we are in need of his forgiveness.” -Pope Francis, 3/17/13 Vatican City

Easter Sunday

2013 St Vincent DePaul Clothing Drive April 13-14th

It’s March and spring house cleaning can’t be far away. Yes, time to clean out the closets, storage room, attic, and basement of all clothes and items you haven’t used in a while. The St. Vincent de Paul Society knows of someone who would be thrilled to wear or use them. On the weekend of April 13-14, the St. Vincent de Paul trucks will be in our parish parking lot. This year we will be accepting clothing, shoes, linens, and books in good or bad condition. Unusable clothing, shoes, linens, and even books generate income for the needy because they are sold for rags or in bulk. Yes, it is okay to bring us your smelly old gym shoes! We also accept small housewares (toasters, blenders, mixers, etc.) and electronics, as the SVdP Thrift Shops are now electronic recycling centers! They will accept your old televisions, stereos, computers, and other electronic equipment—working or not. If you have any large items or furniture you would like to donate, we cannot accept on the trucks, but you can call and schedule a pick up at your home at 630-231-4658.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word – We need ministers! This ministry leads our children in the Sunday readings apart from their parents during the Liturgy of the Word. These sessions occur at the 9:30am and 11:00am chapel Masses and is an excellent way for the children to better understand the readings and prayers and the connection to their own lives. At this time we need more leaders and shepherds for this program. The leader leads the children in Word and prayer and encourages discussion by the children. The shepherds help the leader to walk the children to the meeting area and help to keep order during the meeting. If this ministry might interest you, please contact Deacon Ron at or at 630-718-2153. Volunteers of all ages from 7th grade to our retired parishioners are invited to consider this ministry. The time investment is small; about an hour to read over and meditate on the readings, prayers and discussion topics and then the 15-20 minutes spent with the children on a Sunday. During a given quarter, our leaders and shepherds serve about once per month on the average. If we can get more volunteers in the ministry, that number will decrease. Please pray over this invitation and then contact Deacon Ron if God is asking you to join this ministry.

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. On the other hand, if you are expecting for the first time, or you are new parents who just had a baby or adopted a child, the Elizabeth Ministry would like to celebrate with you and offer our services to you. Through prayers, adoration hours, and sharing personal experiences, our ministers will try to bring you some peace and comfort no matter what your situation is. Contact Sarah at: 630-809-5925 or at:

ROSARY Come pray with us each Tuesday evening in the Church beginning at 7:30 PM. With our Rosaries, we will ask our Lady to intercede for our Holy Father’s special intention of the month, as well as for our own intentions and for world peace without the threat of terrorism. On the third Tuesday of the month, there will be a Rosary Holy Hour with Benediction. All are most welcome to join us. If there is a special intention that you would like to have remembered during the weekly Rosary, please email or come to the Tuesday Rosary to add your intention.
