Our Mission
Conscious of our human weakness, but empowered by the presence of the Holy Spirit among us, we pledge ourselves to this, the mission of Jesus Christ. We are the Roman Catholic Community of St. Petronille, Diocese of Joliet, a people of Prayer, Word and Sacrament. We strive to grow in the awareness of Jesus' presence in ourselves and in each other, and so we respond to His call to pray, to love, to serve, to forgive and to teach His Word to all people.

How can we make St. Petronille feel warm and welcoming to everyone who enters? For this is the responsibility of each of us that make up the family of St Petronille.

              Being a welcoming community is our call as disciples of Jesus Christ.

              Please help us by becoming a greeter! We are looking for individuals, couples and families to join this important ministry. Please sign up to greet at the Mass you normally attend. Assist weekly, monthly, or as your schedule permits! We only ask for ten minutes of your time!
