Saint Irenaeus Catholic Church has been part of the Cypress community since 1961 - a time when there were more cows than Catholics! Since then we have grown into a vibrant, active parish with as many ministries as diverse as we are... from bible study to pew angels, feeding the hungry to Health Ministry, Fall Fiesta to a variety of music ministries serving our children, teens, adults, Spanish speaking parishioners, and the Filipino Catholic Federation. If you're looking for an opportunity to participate, you'll find it at Saint Irenaeus Catholic Church.

Been looking for a way to nurture your faith, reconnect, get more involved, or simply a place to pray? We welcome you with open arms!

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).

The new year has begun and March 19 marks the beginning of Spring which brings with it new life, new hope and new beginnings.

For us Catholics in the Diocese of Orange, each new year gives us an opportunity to make positive and radical changes to our parish, our diocese, and the wider community. As Bishop Kevin W. Vann reminds us, “The joyful mission of our Catholic faith is to help people find a path toward a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This happens every day in our parishes, schools and ministries throughout the Diocese of Orange.” And the vehicle that helps us accomplish this mission is our annual Pastoral Services Appeal (PSA).

Please prayerfully consider participating!

Thank you for your witness to Christ and your generous support.
