A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners, Congratulations to all Graduates This last Friday evening, Saints Peter and Paul celebrated our parish grade school graduation. Congratulations to our graduates and all those who are graduating this Spring! This is a truly blessed time when we give thanks for all the gifts God has given to us and the hard work and accomplishments done in his name. Memorial Day We remember in prayer all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country as well as all our servicemen and women living and deceased at a Mass to be offered at our parish cemetery. This year, we will offer the Mass in the new mausoleum that was constructed and will be dedicated after the same Mass. Please join us as we give thanks for our freedom and offer prayers for those who shed their blood in protecting it. The Mass will be at 8 am in the cemetery followed by the prayer service dedicating the mausoleum. We will also be participating in the prayer service with veterans' memorial in the parish cemetery at 9:15 am. Heating in the Church and Confessionals As you have noticed, we have begun another phase in the "Pass It On" campaign which is the installation of a new heating system in the parish church. The system is original to the building and, after the assessment by an engineering firm owned by one of our parishioners four years ago, it was determined that it would be a prudent proactive measure to replace the system before it is at an emergency level. If you would like to see the progress on our "Pass It On" projects, please log onto our parish webpage and press the "Pass It On" button. All of the projects completed, pending and planned are included as well as all financial information. ( You have certainly noticed that the confessionals are being renovated and with good cause. Not only will they comply with all Protecting God's Children guidelines, but the out-of-code electrical wiring will be replaced and brought to code, sound abatement increased and a brighter warmer feel will make the confessionals more welcoming and up to date. The one feature that the priests, in particular, will like is that they will no longer get a shock when they switch the red and green lights on and off. Frank Glowaty Please join us for a special celebration of Frank Glowaty's 39 years of service with Mass at 12:30 pm followed by a picnic on June 1st. Fr. Douglas Martis' 25th Anniversary Please join us on June 1st at the 8 am Mass, followed by a reception, to give thanks for Fr. Martis' 25 years of priesthood and, in a special way, his consistent priestly ministry to our parish. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

They fell, but o'er their glorious grave; Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save. --Francis Marion Crawford

Summer Catechetical Youth Program June 22-27, 2014 GRADE SCHOOL PROGRAM Students entering Grades 1-6 Monday to Friday, June 23-27, 2014 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM Daily Mass at 11:15 AM – All are welcome $35 registration fee per child Grade 1 - 6 Please pack a lunch, including a drink, for your child Monday thru Friday. Also, feel free to bring items for recess (jump ropes, balls, etc.) JR. HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM Students entering Grades 7-12 Sunday to Thursday, June 22-26, 2014 7:00PM to 9:00PM **All junior high and high school participants are asked to donate a box of cookies, crackers or other snack to share for the week. Please have your teen bring it along on Sunday or Monday. **Space is limited, early registration is recommended** Registrations can be downloaded from the parish website summer-programs. Questions? Please contact: the Religious Education Office at 630-357-2436. Volunteers are needed to help house the Totus Tuus team and provide dinners and meals. Please contact the Religious Education Office at 630-3572436 if you can help. WHAT IS TOTUS TUUS? The Totus Tuus parish summer catechetical program, a week-long “parish mission” for Catholic youth in the 1st through 12th grades, is dedicated to proclamation of the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, apologetics, Christian witness, the sacraments, Marian devotion, and Eucharistic worship. Totus Tuus accomplishes this by taking college students and seminarians to engage the youth of the parish with skits, songs, games and inspiring, interactive teaching. Totus Tuus instructs young people in the basic tenets of the Catholic faith to cultivate both a firm intellectual grounding and a solid personal relationship with Christ. Totus Tuus demonstrates that one can be a faithful, practicing Catholic and still have fun! While classes comprise part of the day, Totus Tuus is not school and makes sure that the kids have FUN too! Therefore, there is a “pump up” to start each day, snack break in the morning, recess and “cool down” after lunch, and a skit break in the afternoon. This popular program has grown tremendously in the few years since it started here…register your child to be a part of it! TOTALLY YOURS Totus Tuus, a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours,” was the motto of St. John Paul II. Taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s work, True Devotion to Mary, it signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through the hands of our Blessed Mother Mary. It also expresses our effort to give all that we have to every young person we encounter. Totus Tuus seeks to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an openness to their vocation by challenging them to give themselves entirely to Jesus Christ through Mary and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of Her. CURRICULUM The Totus Tuus program has divided the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church into a six year cycle. Additionally, each summer is dedicated to the mysteries of the Rosary. In 2014, Totus Tuus will cover: Theme: The 10 Commandments Mysteries: The Luminous Mysteries

Christian Service Happenings Dear Parishioners: Here is a letter from the Founder and Executive Director of Waterleaf Women's Center, Ms. Kelly Gorski. I'm praying we have a huge return rate this year with our bottles. Each and every bottle returned makes a difference. I apologize for running out of bottles - but that was actually a good thing and has never happened before. If you did not get a bottle, you can still make a donation to Waterleaf Women's Center by dropping a check off to the parish office (made out to Waterleaf Women's Center), in an envelope marked Baby Bottle Drive - Attn: Debbie Scanlon. Thank you so much. May God Bless you!!! In Life, Debbie Scanlon Ss. Peter and Paul Parish Pro-Life Coordinator

With 1.3 million abortions annually, how can one center make a difference? At Waterleaf, we embrace the popular story of the starfish. As a young boy and girl walked along a beach at dawn, they noticed an old man ahead of them picking up starfish and tossing them into the sea. Catching up with the man, the girl asked why he was doing this. The old man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun. "But the beach goes on for miles and there are thousands of starfish," exclaimed the girl. "How can you alone make any difference?" The old man looked at the starfish in his hand and then tossed it safely into the waves. He turned to them, smiled and said, "I made a difference to that one. " Since Waterleaf opened in 2009, we know we have saved the lives of at least 72 babies. According to research, every person affects an average of 100,000 lives. That means that we have impacted 7,200,000 million lives! Our work is solely funded through private donations. You are part of our lifesaving team. Your gift makes an impact!

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING MINISTRY Ladies of the parish, we need your help! We need more women to serve as mentors and help balance the ratio of women-to-men on our mentor teams. The homeless mothers in our program really need and truly appreciate their female mentors. If you can help us by becoming part of a mentor team assigned to work with one of our four families, please call Jack Flowers at 630-355-4886. Your presence will bring great comfort to one of the struggling mothers in our program!

SS Peter and Paul Troop IL0908

Christian Service Happenings ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY In the Gospel today, Jesus says to us, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments… whoever loves me will be loved by my Father and I will love him and reveal myself to him.” This month we lost a true Vincentian, Mary Broeker. Mary volunteered her time and talents in many ways. Those in need, that Mary helped, through the years of her love and caring will never know how much Mary truly loved to help whenever asked. She was an inspiration for all Vincentians and we will keep Mary in our prayers. Perhaps one or two who are reading this may feel the need to assist in our efforts to serve the poor and needy in our parish. Please contact us at 630-355-1081.

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:
