Timothy J. Barder

Every worthwhile and lasting relationship in our lives require effort, meaningul communication and a strong personal commitment.  My attending daily Mass as often as possible, being a member of the Knights of Columbus and now as a member of the Parish Council is just that; to help build strong, committed and closely personal relationships with God and the Parish I am associated with, and to share that joy I feel being involved in these endeavors with those who are also making that same effort and commitment alongside me.

I have been a member of St. Petronille parish for more then 20 years and have a son who, as a Dominican priest, has given me a whole new persepctive on teh needs of a parish and its community. I have a Ph.D in Chemistry and have owned my own company for 20 years and I want to bring my experience, energy and insight to help St. Petronille flourish in the next years and help it reach the goals that it has set for itself.

Lisa Mojica

I have been a Parishioner at St. Petronille since 1994 with my husband Mike.   We have five children that have attended St. Petronille School - Evan 23, Thomas, 22, Jonathan, 20, Anna, 15 and Katherine 13. 

I was raised in Elmhurst and attended the University of Notre Dame where I majored in Economics.  We lived briefly in Minnesota before settling into Glen Ellyn in 1994 and I have loved being a part of parish for over 20 years.  I have been involved as a teacher in the Sunday Morning Miracle program and have volunteered extensively at the school.  My leadership roles have included President of CCW, President of the Parent Organization, President of the School Board, President of Benet Academy's Mother's Club and Head Chair of the 2016 Women's Retreat.  I am very eager to contribute to our church and community as a member of Parish Council and am excited about the opportunity to help make our parish an even better place for our parishioners to worship and find community.
