The Joliet City Council has agreed to annex a Kendall County site for a new Catholic church.

The Joliet City Council has agreed to annex a Kendall County site for a new Catholic church. The council last week annexed 15 acres near Arbeiter and Caton Farm Roads at the request of St. Francis Xavier Parish. The site is in the city’s growth corridor, which runs along Caton Farm Road. The church now holds masses in an elementary school gym on Joliet’s far west side. For more than a year, parishioners have worked on building plans and a fundraising campaign for the project, said Rev. Dennis Lewandowski, the church’s pastor.
