Welcome to St. Petronille Parish

Fr. James Dougherty, Pastor

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.

Grace of Motherhood

Upcoming events & charitable collection

  • Kick Off Party:  Sept. 25 at 7:30pm - PLC The Grace of Motherhood is gearing up to begin again this fall!!  We gather monthly to connect with each other and deepen our faith.  We laugh, we cry, we pray, we break bread, and we support each other!  Trust me, you want to come and see what we are all about!  We have some exciting and new things planned for this fall and we welcome all the women of St. Petronille. We look forward to seeing our returning members as well as new faces!  You don’t want to miss this, we have so many wonderful things ahead!  Any questions can be sent to Tanya Singh at

    • Pop Tabs: St. Petronille and Grace of Motherhood are collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Funds collected are used to provide programs, meals, and rooms for families whose children are facing long hospital stays.  Although one tab is small, when we come together as a community we can have a big impact on those who are faced with medical challenges. The power of ONE tab, the power of ONE person, the power of ONE community is incredible; let’s make a difference in someone’s life!

 Is the Blessed Mother is calling you to share in faith and friendship, come find out!
