Sixth Sunday of Easter

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

Ascension of our Lord Next Sunday we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord. The Solemnity of the Ascension is typically celebrated forty days after Easter. The Bishops of Illinois, however, transfer this Solemnity to the following Sunday. Hence, we will celebrate the Ascension next Sunday instead of this Thursday. The Ascension of the Lord commemorates that moment when our Lord gathered with His disciples after His resurrection and ascended to heaven. After this, men dressed in white garments addressed them: “Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will return in the same way as you have seen him going into heaven.”

Fr. Josh departing for new assignment It is hard to believe that Fr. Josh’s 3-year term is already up and he will be departing for his new assignment at St. Isidore in Bloomingdale in mid-June. Fr. Josh has meant so much to our parish and has been involved in so many ways - from teaching our school children to ministering to the needy in our parish - and he will certainly be sorely missed in our parish community. Fr. Josh’s final Mass at the parish will be on Sunday, June 16 at 9:30am in the church. Please come and wish Fr. Josh well.

Welcome Fr. John Lovitsch Fr. John Lovitsch will be ordained on May 18, 2013, and will begin ministry here at Ss. Peter and Paul Parish on Wednesday, June 19th. This will be Fr. John’s first assignment, and he is very devoted and eager to serve God’s people. Please join us in welcoming Fr. John to Ss. Peter and Paul as Parochial Vicar.

Weather As it begins to warm up, please remember to dress properly for Church. I know sometimes I myself forget and come in my shorts, a muscle shirt and flipflops, but you just can’t see it because I am wearing all those vestments. I do, however, get bent out of shape sometimes when I am at the beach catching some rays wearing my tuxedo and the lifeguard has the gall to tell me I am overdressed! Can you believe it? Who does he think he is? [If you have not figured it out, most of this paragraph was exceedingly funny, jocular and meant in jest. For example, I do not know that I have ever worn a tuxedo to the beach needless to say a muscle shirt and flip flops to any place needless to say church. Those flipflop things are painful between your toes!] The part that was not humorous was the very kind and subtle invitation not to dress like you are going to the beach when you come to celebrate the Most Holy Eucharist. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

Sixth Sunday of Easter 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:

Page 10

Please be sure to pick up a baby bottle and participate in our "Baby Bottles for Life" fundraising campaign beginning next weekend. More information is found elsewhere in this bulletin. If you and your family would like to volunteer to help pass out baby bottles after the mass you normally attend next weekend, please give Debbie Scanlon a call. Her number is 630-305-8724. Families with young children are especially invited to help! If you are facing emergency medical situations regarding end of life decisions, the National Catholic Bioethics Center ( will respond ASAP with help from an ethicist, doctor, etc. The number to call is (215) 877-2660. Even though the site states "Monday Friday, 9 AM - 5 PM" for emergency consultation questions, calls are returned even after hours.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word HELP NEEDED!

The children’s Liturgy of the Word ministry is still in need of leaders and shepherds. The program takes place at the 9:30am and 11:00am Masses in the Holy Family Chapel. Children in first through fourth grade join the leader to hear God’s Word in a manner that is easier for them to understand. This takes place in a separate room from the chapel during the same time that their parents are hearing the Word in the chapel. This is a rewarding ministry and the materials that we use, give even the adult leaders a better understanding of scripture. Leaders conduct the program and shepherds help during the session.

SS Peter and Paul Parish is proud to announce the formation of a new troop for American Heritage Girls American Heritage Girls is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. The organization offers badge programs, service projects, girl leadership opportunities and outdoor experiences to its members. Any girl, age 5-18 can be an American Heritage Girl. AHG has a multi-level structure, which means that girls from all levels comprise ONE Troop and meet together as a single troop on the same day. Badge work and certain activities are done within age appropriate groups (units). Please join us on Monday, May 13 at 7:00PM for a parent information meeting in the Social Hall. Julie Goodwin, Troop Coordinator, Ministry Expansion Lead and National Catholic Committee Chair will give an orientation on American Heritage Girls. This exciting new American Heritage Girls troop is open to all girls in the parish. Home school, Public school and SS Peter and Paul students are welcome as well as girls from surrounding parishes.

Sixth Sunday of Easter

The Saints Peter and Paul Peace and Social Justice Committee invites you to explore Catholic Relief Services’ education operations. Imagine the United States without compulsory basic education. Of course, that would leave us severely lacking future astronauts, doctors and diplomats (or at least competent ones), but the effects would probably be more widespread and subtle. How many soft skills, problem-solving skills and critical-thinking skills would be lost? How many positive relationships among parents, students, educators and other community members would be lost? How much hope would be lost? Education is so important that the United Nations included it in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 26), and there is currently an international movement, involving several organizations to provide quality, basic education for everyone, everywhere by 2015. It’s an ambitious goal. Currently, according to UNESCO, 67 million primary-school-aged children are not in school, and around 17% of the world’s adults lack basic literacy skills. However, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is diving into the challenge with education programs and activities that “promote increased access to, quality of, and community involvement in education.” While CRS is certainly not the only organization fighting this good fight, it is different from some others. CRS says, “Special emphasis is given to working with the social agencies of the local Catholic Church and other faith-based organizations because of our shared commitment to promoting justice and our respect for human life and dignity.” So, beyond the faith-based emphasis, how do CRS’ education operations work? A few examples might help us understand: CRS began supporting Food-Assisted Education (or FAE, sometimes called “school feeding programs”) in 1958. “I was trapped into attending school just with a little snack provided by CRS in my village school about four decades ago and since then my life has never been the same,” said Thomas Awiapo, who was a beneficiary of a CRS FAE program in Ghana and now works for CRS Ghana. (Watch a video of his story at Where food is scarce and every bit of labor helps a family survive, FAE makes school a more attractive option for parents and children, and provides the nutrients a child needs to learn. This makes FAE an important component of CRS’ education operations. Recently, CRS went further. Seeing FAE “as one of several possible interventions,” CRS began developing a wider variety of programming. One objective of this programming is promoting girls’ education. In Afghanistan, this can be a particular challenge. There is some cultural resistance, and on a practical level, schools are so far away from some communities that the distance is prohibitively dangerous for girls to travel. CRS has helped bring schools closer to home for many girls (and boys) by engaging communities, respecting their traditions, and giving them the resources they need to start and maintain their own community-based schools. In addition to girls’ education, adult education is another objective of CRS’ education programming. Women are a particular focus, because “their education and status in society is directly related to health and the overall well-being of communities.” Again, Afghanistan offers a good example. CRS helps women there participate in a program that allows them to complete the official government primary school curriculum in half the regular time. Women who complete this program are able to use their new literacy and math skills to do simple, but important things, like help with family businesses. Neighboring Paki-

Page 12

stan offers a similar example, where a CRS women’s support group (formed only after sensitive consultation with community elders and family heads) helps women learn to read, write, do basic math, sew and embroider. One woman said she wanted to attend so that she could learn to write her name and understand phone numbers. Now, she not only does that, but teaches her younger siblings to do the same. She also earns money to help support her family by embroidering clothes. Watch her success at Adult education often overlaps with vocational training and life skills, which comprise another of CRS’ education objectives. The Youth Builds project in Honduras, supported by CRS, provides basic math and reading education, training in technical skills, community service, an internship, and self-esteem workshops to help at-risk youth find healthy, viable alternatives to the gang lifestyle that can often seem like their only option. One beneficiary, Nelson, graduated at the top of his class and received a small loan to start his own business producing and laying cobblestone. "The project saved me," Nelson said. "Before, I carried my gun with me everywhere and was angry. But now I have changed. Now I avoid conflict. Now I have a future and I don't want to lose what I have achieved." Vietnam provides good examples of three more of CRS’ education objectives: inclusive education, strengthening community involvement in education, and promoting health through schools. Here, children with disabilities—sometimes resulting from land mines and other lingering dangers from the Vietnam War—are often viewed as punishment for something bad a parent did in a past life. This belief fosters stigmatization, secrecy, and ignorance. CRS helps educate parents and communities about how to care for these children, making sure they have physical therapy, access to schools and teachers who know how to help them learn. CRS also supports a special college in the capital city, Hanoi, where people with disabilities can study information technology. Furthermore, CRS combats the cause of some of these disabilities by teaching students about unexploded bombs, making sure that naturally curious children know not to touch anything that looks even mildly suspicious. The children then spread the message to adults in their communities, who are at risk of falling victim to the bombs while farming or hunting for scrap metal. Finally, we return to Africa for examples of another of CRS’ education objectives: education for peacebuilding. In our last article on CRS’ health operations, we mentioned the Window of Hope program in Sierra Leone, which teaches boys to avoid the aggressive confrontation that their environment had previously programmed into their behavior. Another example can be found in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where CRS’ partner, Caritas Goma operates a demobilization center for boys who have been sucked into armed militias for survival. If the boys are lucky enough to escape, the center offers a chance to learn not only language and math, but also how to engage with one another without hostility. "They still think like they are in an armed group," one of the teachers said. But at the center, “Confidence is built, the military mind-set is deprogrammed and, for the first time in a long time, they are able to be kids.” You don’t have to be a beneficiary of one of CRS’ education operations to be educated by CRS. Programs like CRS Rice Bowl and Catholics Confront Global Poverty are designed to teach Catholics in the United States about opportunities to grow in and practice our faith. Most of the information above came directly from the CRS website,, where you can learn about their additional education objectives (yes, there are even more), as well as CRS’ work on other issues. The Peace and Social Justice Committee looks forward to passing on more information on CRS here, in the bulletin, in the near future.
