Palmer Florist owners celebrate love
In addition to farm-fresh flowers, Palmer Florist also sells hand-dipped chocolates, fresh fruit arrangements, plush toys and other gifts.The Naperville resident had never worked with flowers prior to purchasing the shop, but his friend convinced him to get into the business, which Kowalczyk says has changed tremendously over the years.“When I bought the shop, everything was done by hand, and the internet has changed the whole business,” he said. “We get a lot of online orders, and people can see photos of the arrangements so they know exactly what they want.”Despite the explosion of online shopping, it’s the personal connection with the customers that keeps places like Palmer Florist in business. Braswell said the shop has been a part of the community for so long that the customers are more like friends.“We hear their stories, and they’re heartfelt. We’re here for our community,” she said. “There’s a legacy here. We’re part of the fabric of the community, and we care about each other. This is a wonderful, family-owned business and just a unique place.”And now, Kowalczyk and Church are gearing up for one of the busiest times of the year.Kowalczyk said 80 to 90 percent of their Valentine’s Day customers are men who are “buying flowers to impress their ladies.” The most popular flowers for the holiday are roses and calla lilies, he said.The couple hasn’t been able to celebrate Valentine’s Day very often over the years because they’re both so busy with the shop, but the one time they did attempt to celebrate, it didn’t go very well, Church said.“In 2009, he sent me flowers for Valentine’s Day, but I was out of the country. The holidays are challenging for us,” Church said with a laugh.---If you goWhat: Palmer FloristWhere: 1926 S.

Simbang Gabi heralds Christmas in Philippine tradition
Lourdes Chew is on the Simbang Gabi committee at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Naperville. St. Thomas is hosting Simbang Gabi Mass at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17.
"Most Filipinos who have moved here and are Americans now have experienced this as a child. For most of us, we grew up with this tradition," she said. "We're very excited the diocese supports us."
Chew said the tradition is a long held one.
"It started way back in the 1500s," she said. "Back home, it's actually held outdoors. The whole town usually participates in it."
Chew said beautiful rituals are part of the evening services. Star-shaped lanterns, symbolizing the star of Bethlehem, are placed in front of the altar, and the priest wears white vestments.
Some parishioners wear traditional dress, such as the barong, a dressy gown, Alzona said.
"We have some readings that are going to be done in Tagalog," Chew said. "Also, some of the songs are going to be styled in Tagalog. Then also we have a procession with the children participating. We bring an empty manger and a mantle of some candles and flowers. It symbolizes some waiting."
Readings and songs also are delivered in English, said Lori Culberson, liturgy coordinator at St. Thomas.
"They really are trying to mix the two, as far as the languages," she said.
Culberson said St. Thomas has been hosting Simbang Gabi services for 20 years.
"Being Catholic isn't just here in Naperville. Being Catholic isn't just here in the United States. It reminds us how big we are," she said, "and how small we are."
A second collection taken at each Mass will benefit Philippine charities.
Chew said collections taken in churches in the western cluster will benefit the Mountaintop Tribal School Outreach in the Philippines. Eastern cluster churches will donate their second collection to the Compassionate Franciscan Sisters of the Poor, which runs an orphanage and cares for the poor and homeless in Naga City, Philippines, Alzona said.
"After the services, they serve traditional food and everyone's invited. Filipino families are really close, so they're welcoming to everyone," Culberson said.
Alzona said Christ the King will serve noodles and chicken, while Chew said St. Thomas will serve pancit noodles and egg rolls.
All are welcome to attend the Simbang Gabi Masses and the celebrations that follow, both Chew and Alzona said.
"We want to encourage people to bring their friends," Chew said.
The last night of Simbang Gabi, Dec. 22, brings the two clusters together for a 7:30 p.m. Mass in the Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus in Joliet.

Funeral set for Naperville activist shot in Chicago
Family and friends are preparing to lay to rest Naperville activist Ronald Allen after the 73-year-old was shot to death last week in Chicago.
Services will begin with visitation from 7 to 9 p.m. Dec. 16 at DuPage African Methodist Episcopal Church in Lisle, where Allen had been a member since the late 1970s.
Family members and the church then will host a wake for Allen from 1 to 2 p.m. Dec. 17 with a funeral service to follow.
Allen was shot to death at about 2:20 a.m. Friday while driving on the 1300 block of North Laramie Avenue in Chicago, where he had been visiting friends and playing cards. Chicago police say the investigation into the shooting continues, but they do not have any suspects or information about a possible motive.
Relatives say they have spent the days since Allen's death going through family photos and reminiscing about his life. Two fond moments came as recently as last month, when he got to see the Cubs win the World Series and pray with his family at Thanksgiving, his son Keith Allen said.
