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.

             Easter blessings upon you and your loved ones throughout this Easter Season. As we glory in the light of the Risen Christ – may we, too, bring light to others by the joy we exude as we live our faith and witness to the Resurrection.

As we continue to pray the “BE MY WITNESS” prayer after weekend Masses and as we continue to gather in small Christian communities to pray together, learn together, and share our “faith stories” with one another – may our spirited joy of the gospel be shared with our fellow parishioners and others as well.

The holy scriptures we will be hearing during this awesome season of the church will stir our hearts to bring the Good News to others. We will hear of the many appearances of the Risen Lord to His followers and the faith, joy and enthusiasm of the early church will become contagious in our day and age. May we continue to share in the mission of Jesus by our intentional, daily faith sharing as we describe how the Lord Jesus is being experienced in our lives. 



Love & continued prayers,

Fr. Jim Dougherty and the Priests, Deacons & Staff  of St. Petronille Faith Community
