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.
