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  charitable collection

  • 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!
