On Thursday, November 17, our St. Petronille School seventh grade students joined with more than 700 other seventh and eight graders from 16 schools in the Diocese of Joliet to attend the Called by Name Vocations and Discipleship Conference. The all-day event was held at St. Isaac Jogues Church in Hinsdale. The day began with a keynote talk in Church about the meaning of life, and the term "vocation." This was followed by a variety of breakout sessions, including a Catholic trivia competition, Vocations Fair, Name That (Catholic) Tune, and Seminarian Basketball. The day was punctuated with music and even dance, and opportunities throughout the day to partake in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The day's events culminated with our Superintendent of Schools, Fr. John Belmonte, S.J., presiding at Eucharistic Adoration, and closed with remarks by Fr. Burke Masters, Director of the Vocations Office for the Diocese of Joliet.
On the last day of school leading up to Thanksgiving break, a glimpse inside our kindergarten classrooms revealed students who were engaged in a service project which would reach out to the wider community. The project involved making placemats and napkin holders for guests who would be sharing Thanksgiving dinner at our local PADS shelter. The paints, the scissors, cotton balls, and construction paper were all put to good use, and when all was said and done, some colorful and creative accessories to any table setting, were ready to be dropped off in time for Thanksgiving!
School tours are given every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. starting in the school office.
Request a spot now, and feel free to come early for the all-school Mass at 9:00 a.m. in the church to really get a feel for the St. Pet's community.
