Home > Community Life > Devotions
As the church evolved and Christ’s word spread throughout the world, the people who accepted the word tried to incorporate it into their culture and their daily lives. Although many types of devotions have evolved over time, they all share the common theme of guiding the faithful with religious meditation and providing opportunities to express their belief in Christ.
Several of St. Irene's parishioners have joined others in pilgrimages to Lourdes, the Holy Land and Medjugorje, while others have journeyed locally. Many parishioners participate in devotions held within our Church community. Each year St Irene’s formally conducts Eucharistic Adorations, celebration of the First Friday of every month, and the Forty Hours devotion.
