Dear Parishioners of Saint Petronille,

Parish Opening

The Diocese of Joliet has issued new directives increasing the opening of the parishes within the Diocese effective June 12th.  The following are in effect as of Saturday, June 12th:

  • Sign-up is no longer required to attend Mass;
  • There are no longer any limits on those attending indoor activities;
  • Masks are no longer required in facilities for those who have been vaccinated.
  • The Diocese of Joliet has instructed parishes not to ask employees or the general populace to provide their vaccination status.

With sensitivity to those who still feel more comfortable wearing masks or who cannot be vaccinated, every other pew in the side pews on the Blessed Mother side of the church will remain roped off to maintain social distance and, for the time being, I will continue to wear my mask when distributing Communion.

We will also begin using the main front doors of the church for entrance beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, June 9th.  You will no longer need to use the side door #2 for most Masses.  Please remember, however, that the 8 am daily Mass Monday through Friday will be held in the Parish Life Center beginning Monday, June 14th.  All those worshipping at the 8am Mass on weekdays will need to enter using door #2 as the church will not be accessible during this time.

Opening Plans

Since changes are occurring quickly, we will have more detailed information for you about plans to welcome back all of our parishioners and special celebrations as the summer progresses.  We will have a special Mass of prayer and remembrance for those who suffered loss this year and Thanksgiving for an end to the pandemic.  More details will follow. One thing we can rest assured…this year’s Sparkfest will be a wonderful opportunity for the parish to celebrate together the re-opening of our parish and the end to this trying 14 months.  Praise God!


Let us pray for those who have suffered loss this year whether the loss of a loved one, the loss of job, the loss of freedom or the loss of health.  Let pray for all those who continue to struggle in so many ways due to the difficulty of this pandemic even as we rejoice at the ability to worship openly and together once again.

Please know of my continued thoughts and prayers for all of you and may Almighty God grant us his consolation and joy.

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas Milota
