Welcome to St. Petronille Parish
Fr. James Dougherty, Pastor
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.

Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation, called “The Joy of the Gospel,” which was released last year, provides a vision for discipleship and evangelization in the 21st century. Since these are the key themes in the new diocesan framework for pastoral action, the Newman Institute has created a website for sharing Pope Francis’ text–in bite-sized chunks. “We have created a format for people to subscribe to read one paragraph per day starting January 1, 2015,” said David Spesia, Director of the Newman Institute. “Call it an early Christmas present, make it a New Year’s resolution, or just accept it as a chance to walk with Pope Francis as he shares the joy of the Gospel.” To access the site and subscribe to read a paragraph a day from “The Joy of the Gospel”—or to help spread the word—go to www.AJoyWhichIsShared.org.
