Welcome to Saints Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Naperville. This web site stands in the tradition of our patrons, St. Peter and St. Paul, and the other apostles, who, following Christ’s command, proclaimed the Gospel to the ends of the earth. As they used the technology and means of their time, traveling on the Roman system of roads, writing letters to their communities, so we today continue the mission of the Church in the New Evangelization, reaching out to our brothers and sisters using the new technology and media of our day.
The members of Saints Peter & Paul parish are part of the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ for the salvation of the world. We are a community of believers united in the Christian faith with Peter’s successor, the Bishop of Rome, and all those in communion with him including our bishop, the Bishop of Joliet. As such, the mission of our parish, like the mission of every Catholic parish, is to help people grow in holiness by living lives that reflect the love of the Most Holy Trinity. We do this by studying and proclaiming the Word of God, and by celebrating the Sacraments of the Church, including, preeminently, the Eucharist in which Christ feeds the faithful with His very Body and Blood. By following the call of the Holy Spirit, by imitating Jesus Christ and seeking to do the Father’s will, we share the truth of the Gospel with others by our testimony and example. Through acts of charity and social justice we seek to build a culture of life in the world today as we long for the Kingdom of God in the world to come.
