Health Ministry is happy to announce that Giving Tree Outreach will be distributing gift bags and holding parties once again for our care center residents and staff. Our homebound parishioners will also receive gift bags and care center staff will be
treated to Christmas cookies.
Giving Tree Outreach needs your help filling over 450 bags. If you'd like to fill a bag with goodies, you can pick up a bag and list of suggested items at the front of the church beginning Thanksgiving weekend, November 26 and 27. Filled bags need to be returned by Sunday, December 11.

And by our love and service to one another, may we hear him say to us,
"Well done, my good and faithful servant... Come, share your master's joy" (Mt 25:23).
Our Faith, Our Future: 2022 PSA
First, a big thank you for your generous support in the 2021 Pastoral Services Appeal (PSA) Campaign! Our parishioners far exceeded the 2021 goal. The amount collected in excess of the goal augments the funds needed to complete the church renovation project. This demonstrates a fabulous commitment by all to the success of this parish and the mission of the Diocese to fund the many ministries supported by the annual PSA campaigns. Saint Irenaeus parishioners once again shone bright and maintained their leadership role in stewardship within the Diocese. Way to go Saint Irenaeus!
We asked that you prayerfully consider donating to this year's Our Faith, Our Future 2022 PSA Campaign. No gift is too small and every gift is greatly appreciated. If each family gives a little, we will make a big impact on so many people!
