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.

Why Should we Pray the Rosary

by Fr. Burke Masters, Vocation Director for the Diocese of Joliet and Chicago Cubs Team Chaplain


 Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital

in Wheaton seeks volunteers who are willing to help out at worship services on Sundays, as well as trained Eucharistic Ministers to offer communion to our patients during the week.  There is a need for Mass Assistants to aid the Priest and to distribute communion at Mass, as well as for piano players at both Sunday services. Sunday worship services are at 10:45 a.m. (Non-Denominational) and 1:00 p.m. (Catholic Mass).  Catholic Eucharist is distributed daily at noon.  Interested in volunteering in any of these ways, please contact the Marianjoy Volunteer Office at (630) 909-7400, to begin the volunteer application process.
