Worship Ministry Opportunities —
The Rosary is the most well-known and used form of chaplet (a devotional prayer using beads). The purpose of the Rosary is to help keep in memory certain principal events or mysteries in the history of our salvation, and to thank and praise God for them.
Join with others before and after any Weekday Mass for a group recitation of The Rosary. Are you new to praying The Rosary? Don’t hesitate – we have instructive prayer cards AND rosaries for you to use!
Advent & Lent
Each liturgical year the Church offers us Advent and Lent, four- and six-week seasons, to intently reflect on the birth, life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As a community, St. Irenaeus puts forth a variety of inspiring worship, learning, and service opportunities during Advent and Lent to help each person strengthen their identity as a follower of Christ.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Join others in this most solemn devotion offered on Monday evenings from 7-8pm during Advent and Lent.
Stations of the Cross
You are welcome anytime to pray the Stations of the Cross. The Rosary after weekday Mass usually ends with the Stations. Also, as a community we gather on Friday evenings during Lent as part of our seasonal prayer.
Funeral Liturgy Plans
It is our privilege to work with your family as you plan the Mass of Christian Burial for your loved one. After you have met with the funeral home and set a date for the Mass, our pastoral staff can meet with you at your convenience to discuss your selection of readings, prayers, music and participants. We will also assist your family at church prior to the Mass to care for any last minute instructions or arrangements.
We hope to make this as easy and meaningful for your family as possible. If out of town family members would like to help in your plans, direct them to this site to view our Funeral Planning Forms.
