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.

Men’s Fall Retreat

Bellarmine Jesuit Retreat House in Barrington, IL


Join other men from St. Petronille

September 22-24, 2017
for an Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men

with Fr. Doug Leonhardt, SJ
The Spiritual Exercises: Who am I? Where am I going? How do I get there?


A retreat is a contemporary way of observing the Sabbath.  We cease from work.  We make space for God.  We enjoy the holiness of the gift of time to contemplate who we are from God’s perspective, where He is inviting to go with our lives, and how to follow His lead.
