Welcome! We are so glad you are here!
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).

PLEASE JOIN US!
The procession of the Blessed Sacrament will start at the church about 9 a.m. and proceed south on Grindlay to Orange. We’ll walk past City Hall and the library, and then turn north on the access road between the library and the tennis courts. After walking through the Civic Center parking lot, we’ll head north on Grindlay to arrive back at Saint Irenaeus in time for the 9:45 a.m. Mass.

2023 PSA Campaign
Pastoral Services Appeal (PSA) is an annual campaign that funds selected ministries and services benefiting all Catholics in the Diocese of Orange. Those of you who contributed to the 2022 PSA should have received a letter from Bishop Kevin W. Vann thanking you for your prayer and support. I too am grateful for your participation and contribution.
Like the previous year, the money that is raised through the 2023 PSA campaign has been allocated specifically to fund: 1) diocesan Catholic Schools, 2) families and individuals through Catholic Charities, 3) diaconate and priestly formation, 4) priestly retirement, 5) parish support, 6) prison ministry and other outreach. The PSA allows us to respond to Jesus’ call to discipleship beyond the boundaries of our parish: You shall love your neighbor as yourself (Leviticus 19:18).
Last year, we surpassed our overall diocesan PSA goal and received $106,630 in rebates! This year, our diocese has given us the same goal of $201,000. Once this goal is met, all of the money over that goal comes back to our parish. The 2023 PSA parish rebate money will be earmarked to replenish the parish building fund that was used to renovate our church.
We asked that you prayerfully consider donating to this year's 2023 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!
Yours in Christ, Fr. Binh
YES! I AM READY TO GIVE NOW TO 2023 PSA!
