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.



Weekend Mass Times:


Saturday: 5pm

Sunday: 7:30am, 9:30am, 11:30am and 5pm (every Sunday)

CCW Luminary Sale

Once again, the Council of Catholic Women (CCW) is organizing a Christmas Luminary Sale this holiday season.   Our Christmas Eve display included luminaries which had been purchased by parishioners in honor or memory of loved ones.  We hope to increase the number of luminaries in this year’s display and to provide a beautiful candle-lit pathway to the Church on Christmas Eve.
