May the Lord in his goodness lead us all closer to him.

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).

  • Bread for the journey

    The Eucharist transforms lives. It is a celebration of thanksgiving that joins individuals with Christ and the Church. Many people don’t fully understand the beauty and power of the Eucharist. It’s difficult to hear God’s voice amid the noise of the world. This video series provides attendees with a greater understanding of Jesus and the Eucharist so that we may more fully live in God’s love.

Pastoral Services Appeal 2024

Bishop Kevin Vann once again invites us to help him in carrying out the mission of the Catholic Church, to touch the hearts and change the lives of people in our community. Our financial contribution to the annual Pastoral Services Appeal is one way to make this possible.

Because of the kindness of past donors throughout the Diocese of Orange, PSA 2023 was able to

  • support 51 of our elderly priests in retirement
  • educate/form 23 seminarians and many permanent deacon candidates
  • educate 17,000 students in our Catholic Schools through tuition assistance
  • serve 615,000 families through Catholic Charities of Orange
  • provide ministry to the deaf community, the incarcerated, and many poor parishes

These diocesan ministries would not be possible without the generous Catholic faithful. I want to thank those who have contributed to the PSA last year, and in a few weeks you will be receiving a personal thank you letter from Bishop Vann as well. This year, the PSA assessment for St. Irenaeus is the same as last year ($201,000), and the money collected will go directly to the mission and ministries mentioned above. Any amount above our assessed amount will be rebated to St. Irenaeus and used to replace all the old doors of our beautifully renovated church.

I pray that God will move your heart to give this year so that we can continue to touch the hearts and change the lives of others.

Heavenly Father,

Grant us the grace to live joyfully, to serve selflessly and to give generously as witnesses of Your love in the world. Enliven our hearts to build up one community of faith and to proclaim with one voice the Good News of Jesus Christ. Help us to grow closer to you each day, so that we can recognize your abundant gifts in our lives and joyfully share them with others. Amen.

Fr. Binh
