Welcome to

St. Petronille Parish

Fr. Thomas Milota, Pastor

Praised be Jesus Christ!


We exist to serve Jesus Christ and His people in the Catholic Church with the Most Holy Eucharist as the source and summit of our lives. 

     God has blessed our parish with a strong and vibrant parish school, faith formation program and Christian outreach near and far. 

     We would be grateful for the opportunity to welcome you to our community and walk with you in your relationship with the Lord.

     Please take a moment to review our webpage and introduce yourself to the many opportunities our parish has to offer.

     May Almighty God bless you and keep you always in His love.


In Christ,  Fr. Thomas Milota, Pastor
