Welcome to St. Irene

Our Catholic Community of Faith

Mass on the Grass October 2017

We, the members of the St. Irene Parish Family, are called to be a Catholic Community of Faith. As a Community, we gather together for worship, fellowship, and mutual support. United by baptism, we are called by God to carry out the Gospel mission of Jesus Christ, who came to serve, to challenge, and to teach. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are called to preach, to teach and to proclaim the Good News of Jesus with our lives, in both our actions and our words, evangelizing in the name of Jesus.

From Bishop Richard E. Pates (3/19/20):  "Because of the rapid spread of the virus and in accord with the actions taken by the neighboring dioceses, all Church services, beginning with weekend Masses, daily Mass, Stations of the Cross, etc., in the parishes and institutions in the Diocese of Joliet will discontinue immediately. This will remain in effect until it is prudently advisable to resume them. The diocese will make the decision as to when to resume them. The Sacrament of Penance may be administered when approached, in accordance with health guidelines.

"The ceremonies of Holy Week beginning with Palm Sunday Celebration on April 4th through Easter are canceled in the parishes and institutions of the Diocese of Joliet. This radical step is most painful but is undertaken in the interests of the health of our parishioners and the broader community."

Welcome Father Clive! 

Fr. Clive Otieno is a priest of the Diocese of Joliet in Illinois having been ordained almost five years ago on May 2015 at St. Raymond Cathedral by Bishop Daniel Conlon. He was born in Nairobi, Kenya, where he grew up in a large family on the Eastland of Nairobi. Since ordination in 2015, he has worked as a parochial vicar (pastoral associate) at both St. Isidore Parish in Bloomingdale, IL and at St. Walter Church, in Roselle, where he is currently serving. He was recently appointed as a first time pastor of St. Irene, Warrenville and he is excited about his new  assignment and looks forward with hope in joining and sharing his life with his new community at St. Irene. May the Holy Spirit lead us to greater things!
