Dear Parishioners of Saint Petronille,

God’s Blessings!

Please remember in your prayers our parishioners who are receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation
this Saturday!  Their confirmation was delayed from last Spring due to the virus, but we will celebrate
with great joy and Bishop Hicks.

Thank you!

Thank you to Diane Makowski and her team for preparing the wonderful celebration for Fr. Palmer’s
50th anniversary of ordination and for our Knights of Columbus for serving the libations.  Fr. Palmer
felt very much appreciated!

Sr. Rubi – September 25-26

A member of the Guardians of the Visitation who minister to those in need in the Philippines will be

May Almighty God bless you and keep you.


In Christ,

Fr. Thomas Milota
