Letter from our Pastor

Fr. James Dougherty

Dear Folks:

Welcome to the website of St. Petronille Roman Catholic Church and Faith Community! Through this vehicle of communication and information we introduce you to the identity and personality of our parish – to our rich heritage, to our people in leadership roles, to our parish campus complex, to our programs, services, events and activities.

As you journey through the various pages available to you and acquaint yourself with who we are and what we do – we sincerely hope that you will decide to become a part of us, remain a part of us, and invest yourself fully and with enthusiasm into our presence.

We know that the Lord is in our midst and can evidence His hand at work within us and around us as we share in His mission of sanctifying and teaching – of understanding, compassion and outreach – of living our lives with direction and deliberateness – of making a positive difference in our own lives and in those of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

We do this by being responsible stewards in the areas of prayer and worship, education, Christian service and administration through our parish council and staff, together with the many, very generous volunteers who are investing their time, talent and treasure in our present and for our future.

We hope that you will be impressed and edified as you take time to see the larger picture of our parish life – each brush-stroke being added by the dynamic people who are working collectively and collaboratively with each other.

May this upgrade and enhancement of our communication be a helpful tool to keep you up to date with the community life and activity of St. Petronille Parish.

In the Spirit of Jesus Christ,


Father Jim Dougherty
Pastor and the priests, deacons & staff of St. Petronille Parish
