Special Needs Prayer Group

On the 2nd Saturday of the month, beginning on October 8, 2016 we are beginning a prayer and reflection time for those with Special Needs. It includes an open and closing prayer led by one of our special needs guests, acting out Scripture with our guests being the characters in the story, crafts, music, and snacks. The event lasts from 1 to 2:30 p.m. You will see lots of smiles from both our guests and those who assist! Come join us to help make this happen!

Contact Deacon John,, if you have any questions or would like to be a helper for this ministry.

RCIA for Children

St. Irenaeus welcomes with joy those who wish to return to the church of their baptism or to join us in embracing Jesus Christ for the first time! It is an honor and a privilege for us to share our faith with you. Your questions and inquiries will always be respectfully received by the Pastor and staff. Come join us in prayer and see what blessings will be yours.

RCIA for Children is for children not baptized as infants and for children who were baptized in a different Christian community who would like to receive the sacraments of First Communion or First Reconciliation.

The order of Christian initiation for Children is a wonderful gift to the parish. Children have a way of ministering to their families and to the community. Welcoming children into the community of faith and forming them in its life continues to raise new, good questions for each generation of Christians.

If you have any questions about RCIA for Children please contact, Kathy Freer at (248) 651-2443 Ext. 117
