A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners, First Confessions Congratulations to all of our 2nd graders and all those who received their first confession this last Tuesday and will receive their first confession this coming Tuesday. Saints Peter and Paul's outreach to those in need Saints Peter and Paul has many ways that she assists those in need. Last month, for example, our parishioners were able to help 35 people get to their medical appointments. There are also more than 20 parishioners who bring communion to the homebound on a weekly basis and even more who are diligent in bringing communion to those in the hospital. Thank you to all those who so generously donate their time to these charitable good works. Saint Vincent DePaul and our parish staff are presently coordinating Thanksgiving Dinners for those in need. If you are aware of anyone in our community that might have need of a Thanksgiving Dinner, please phone the Saints Peter and Paul Christian Service Office to let us know (630718-2155). Deacon Joe Verdico and Paulette Shea are organizing a giving tree in the Ministry Center. Please stop by within the next two weeks to pick up your giving tree tag to help a family in need this Christmas. Light the Way Saints Peter and Paul will be holding our Light the Way dinner this year once again. Proceeds will go to benefit our Saint Vincent DePaul Society, Naperville Responds for our Veterans and Waterleaf Woman's Center. Please phone the parish office for more information. Confessions on Saturday evenings Confessions will no longer be heard in the church on Saturdays at 4 pm beginning the first Sunday in Advent. Instead they will be heard at 4 pm in the Holy Family Chapel in the Ministry Center. The reason for this change is to allow plenty of time between the transition of 2:30 weddings and the start of 5 pm Mass on Saturday evenings. Please notice that this is no change in the schedule, but just the location of confessions. Marathon This Sunday morning is the Naperville City Marathon. Because of street closures and the close proximity of Saints Peter and Paul to the start and finish line, we have attempted to take efforts to ensure our parishioners access to Mass. We added a second 5 pm Mass in the Holy Family Chapel on Saturday evening and also put up signs reserving the parking lots' use to those attending Mass. I hope this helped you this weekend. Faith Formation As you know, at the entrance to the church and chapel and adoration chapel, Saints Peter and Paul Parish offers various CD's on topics of spiritual importance. Lighthouse Catholic Media informed us last week that in the three years that Saints Peter and Paul has been offering these CD's, we have distributed more than 15,000 CD's. Relic of St. Mother Theresa of Calcutta Thank you to Elaine Lenz for donating the relic of a lock of Mother Theresa's hair. The relic will be displayed in the church on her feast day each year, September 5th, and will also be available for particular presentations to the children in our Religious Education program and parish school. Thank you Thank you to all those who sent novenas of Masses, cakes, donuts, cards, gift cards, fruit baskets, etc. for my birthday last week. The gifts were very thoughtful and appreciated. I did share and everything was delicious. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

The End of Religious Liberty in the Land of Lincoln By Robert Gilligan The Illinois House of Representatives yesterday completed a mission started by its Senate counterparts in February by redefining what is outside of its authority: a nature-ordered union of one man and one woman, the institution of marriage. Come June 1, marriage in Illinois will be defined as "between two persons." During floor debate, lawmakers threw out words such as "equality" and "fairness." But one important term was glossed over -- religious freedom. It's in the title of the bill, lawmakers said, the "Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act." They further noted that no church or clergy will be forced to solemnize any same-sex marriage or rent their parish or fellowship halls for any type of same-sex wedding recognition. It's all good, lawmakers assured faith groups and religious organizations. Your religious freedom is secure. Where have we heard that before? How about three years ago, when Illinois lawmakers promised during floor debate on civil unions legislation that no faith-based social service organizations would be affected. But within six months of civil unions becoming law, all Catholic Charities in the state were pushed out of their longtime mission of caring for abused, abandoned, and neglected children. The state refused to renew contracts for foster care and adoption services because of Charities' religious belief of not placing children with unmarried couples, be they heterosexual or homosexual. We know better this time. We know our religious freedom is not protected. And when we asked for more protection, our pleas for fairness were rebuffed and spurned. Senate Bill 10 offers no specific protection regarding employment practices. If a current church employee chooses to "marry" a same-sex partner, the legislation offers no specific protection regarding the church being forced to pay -- from funds collected every Sunday from faithful church-goers in the pews -- for benefits for the "spouse." The legislation offers no conscience protections to health-care facilities, educational facilities, or social service agencies. So, faith-based hospitals, colleges, and universities that own and operate venues for rent are not protected. Individuals and independent business owners whose religious beliefs do not condone same-sex marriage are also left in the dust. There are the stories about the photographers, bakers, florists, and bed-and-breakfast owners who have come under fire for refusing to serve same-sex weddings. What about the county judge asked to perform a same-sex wedding, or a public school teacher forced to teach about a family with two moms, two dads, or some other permutation? They get nada. Is this fairness, or tolerance? As other states grapple with redefinition of marriage efforts, we urge them to learn from Illinois. Hold on to the natural order of marriage as one man and one woman joining together to form a union of body, mind, and spirit, with the intent and hope of creating children with whom to share their love. Hold on to marriage as the only institution that ties children to their biological mother and father, and serves as the cornerstone of the family and society. And hold on to the religious freedom that allows us to practice our faith beyond the four walls of a church. Robert Gilligan is the Executive Director of the Catholic Conference of Illinois.

Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time Pro-Life News You Can Use

PRAYER AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD The SS. Peter and Paul Pro-Life Group invites all members of the parish, friends, relatives, etc., to join them to pray in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Aurora. Our prayer is offered for the sake of our endangered preborn infants, and for the conversion of the staff and customers of that clinic. Every Tuesday at 2PM a priest or deacon from SSPP prays the Rosary (no sign-up is necessary). All are warmly welcomed.

WEEKLY RESPECT LIFE ROSARY There is yet another opportunity to pray the Rosary for Life here at our Parish. A group has gathered for years, after the 8:00 Mass, in our Church, to pray the rosary for an end to abortion. They always welcome anyone to join them. This may be a setting that is a more comfortable way for you to pray for an end to abortion. God bless these faithful prayer warriors.

The New Evangelization This Winter: Oremus – A Guide to Catholic Prayer “Say Your Prayers” Do you find it easy to pray? Is prayer an integral part of your day? Do you hear God’s voice in your daily life, and know how to respond accordingly? We all desire an intimate relationship with God. But, perhaps since learning to “say our prayers” as children, we never moved beyond rote recitation to an authentic conversation with God. Not Just For Mystics For most of us prayer becomes a source of frustration as we struggle to calm our minds and find even a few minutes to set aside to pray. In our busy lives prayer is seen as a luxury, when in reality it is at the foundation of a healthy spiritual life. The good news is you can overcome your difficulties with prayer, and it is easier than you might think.

Oremus – Let Us Pray The Oremus study program teaches the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer life. Over the course of eight weeks you will discover how God speaks to you, even in the smallest encounters. Following the Tradition of the Catholic Church and the wisdom of the saints, you will learn how to express yourself to God in prayer, and how to hear his voice. In Oremus You Will:  Become aware of God’s presence in your life  Discover the simple yet profound steps of Catholic prayer  Learn how to respond to God and express yourself in prayer  Discover how to hear God’s voice in Scripture, in your heart, and in ordinary moments.  Learn how to overcome frustrations, distractions, and dryness in prayer.  See that desolation and consolation are a normal part of everyone’s walk with God.  Grow in your relationship with God and those around you. Details     

Sessions will be held Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm in the Ministry Center Social Hall Eight Sessions: Dec 5, 12, 19, Jan 9, 16, 23, 30 and Feb 6 Cost: $15.00 for materials To register, contact Denise at 630-718-2156 or Registration deadline November 25th.

What is happening next Sunday at Mass for those ready to move forward in our parish’s RCIA process? The unbaptized inquirers to go through the Rite of Acceptance into the Order of Catechumens, and baptized inquirers to go through the Rite of Welcoming next Sunday. The first phase of the journey of initiation has been a time for seekers to hear the mystery of Christ proclaimed. We ask you to please pray for the inquirers as they continue their conversion journey and for our RCIA process as we assist them in moving toward a closer relationship with God. We invite you to take an active role in welcoming our soon-to-be catechumens and candidates, and to be models of faith and Christian charity for them. What is the RCIA Rite of Acceptance into the Order of Catechumens? The Rite of Acceptance into the Order of Catechumens is for inquirers in the RCIA process who are preparing for their Baptism. They are now ready to publicly declare their intention to continue their journey towards becoming Catholics. At this Rite, they are asked to more fully embrace the Gospel message with the help of God, and are also signed with the Cross to show that they now belong to Christ, the Shepherd of souls. In this Rite, the parish community has the opportunity to more fully participate in and pray for those in the RCIA process. At Sunday Mass, some of the inquirers who are considering joining the Catholic Church are going through the Rite of Acceptance. This Rite places these catechumens in a formal relationship with the Church. We encourage all parishioners to pray for these souls as they continue in the initiation process over the coming months. What is the RCIA Rite of Welcoming? The Rite of Welcoming is for inquirers who have been previously baptized and are ready to publicly declare their intention to continue their journey toward full communion with the Catholic Church. At this Rite, they are asked if they are ready to listen to the apostles’ instruction, gather with the worshipping community in prayer, and join that community in the love and service of others. They are signed with the Cross to show that they belong to Christ. When will these Rites be celebrated? The Rite of Acceptance will occur at the 11:00 Mass next Sunday, November 17th. The Rite of Welcoming will occur the same day at the 12:30 Mass.
