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.

Saturday, November 15, 2014

  Father Joseph Tapella, the Judicial Vicar of the Joliet    Diocesan Tribunal, and Desirée Marciani, the associate  director of The Office of Family Ministry, will conduct  an annulment information seminar, on Saturday,  November 15, 2014, from 9am to 4pm at the  Blanchette Catholic Center in Crest Hill. People  interested in petitioning for annulment, those already in  the process, and those who are just curious about the  process are welcome to attend. The annulment process  will be explained and all questions will be welcomed.  This day does not start the process but offers a friendly  atmosphere to learn what annulment means and what is  entailed in the process. During the day those in  attendance will have a “hands-on” review of the Joliet  diocesan annulment paperwork. Kindly pre-register  by November 7. A $25 fee includes morning coffee,  lunch, and a binder with handouts. Check-in begins  at 8:30am. For information and/or to register, please  call The Office of Family Ministry at 815- 838-5334.
