Dear Parishioners of Saint Petronille,

Catechists Needed

Our Religious Education program, which meets on Wednesday evenings, is in dire need of catechists so that we can effectively teach all those coming to us.  If you have ever thought about taking a key role in handing on the faith to the next generation, please consider helping.  Please contact our Religious Education office at Phone: (630) 858-3796 or, ext. 4109.  We are in particular need of the following:

4:15-5:30pm Grade 6 Catechist Assistant
6:00-7:15pm Grade 1 Catechist and Catechist Assistant

Singing in church update

The Diocese has revised its guidance on singing in church.  Yeh!  We can sing again.  We will certainly continue the required preventative measures like wearing masks, but it will be nice to be able to sing.  More information to come about reconstituting our beautiful choir.

Saint Petronille Octoberfest at Reserve 22 on October 23

Given the exceptional Covid news in DuPage County, Saint Petronille will be having an Octoberfest celebration on Saturday, October 23rd beginning at 6:30 pm at Reserve 22.  Gavin Coyle and his band will be our musical guests and admission cost is only $10 per adult parishioner…children eat free.  Your admission fee includes a hot meal provided by Reserve 22, wine and beer.  We offer a special thank you to all those who worked so hard during the pandemic to keep our church and school open.  Please join us!

Some have asked, “How can the parish do this given Covid restrictions?”  Please notice that we are abiding by all the Covid guidelines as required by the State of Illinois for restaurants.  If you have been out to a restaurant in the last four months, then you understand.  Please come and join us for some warm family fun in the dark days of October.

Communion on the tongue and wearing masks

Please notice that our Diocese requires masks be worn while inside the church.  This also means within the church.  Please make sure that the mask covers your nose and mouth.  Also, although communion in the mouth is permitted under present Covid-19 guidelines, those receiving communion in the mouth are asked to come last in the communion line.  Thank you for your kind cooperation.

Thank you!

Thank you to our Respect Life committee here at the parish for their help constructing our field of cross for Respect Life Month.  See the picture below.

Mary Marchese

Congratulations to our Saint Petronille graduate who is getting her due as an artist at the age of 96.  The following was in the Daily Herald: “The Glen Ellyn Public Library is featuring 50 of her oil paintings on its Gallery Wall. The paintings feature portraits of four generations of her family, ‘the people I love,’ Marchese says. She took an interest in art in 1934 when she was in the fourth grade at St. Petronille School in Glen Ellyn. During her three years at Glenbard Township High School (which became Glenbard West), she earned art awards and was named the official artist for the Girl Reserves service club. Her parents insisted she attend Immaculate Conception for her senior year, where she continued as an artist, drawing the ‘Isn't It The Truth’ comic strip for the school newspaper.”

May Almighty God bless you and keep you.


In Christ,

Fr. Thomas Milota
