Latest St. Irene Parish News

Update on St. Irene Catholic School (Jan 8, 2021)

It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of St. Irene School at the conclusion of the 2020-21 school year. St. Irene School has struggled for years with low enrollment, which has forced a greater reliance on parish support. The challenges of COVID have only intensified these concerns.

After consulting with the Diocesan Superintendent and Chief Financial Officer, we made the difficult decision to suspend operations of the school, which has served our parish and community for almost 70 years.

School families were notified of this news via teleconference last evening. We want to assure our school families, parishioners, alumni and friends that St. Irene is always your home. We will be working with the Catholic Schools Office to assist families in transferring to other Catholic schools, including St. John the Baptist in Winfield, St. Michael in Wheaton or All Saints and Sts. Peter and Paul in Naperville.

We ask for your continued prayers as we close this chapter of our ministry and support our families.

St. Irene is reopening with social distancing and safety protocols during COVID-19.  To read more about the process, view our reopening letter in English and Spanish.  Review the video above for details on new protocols and procedures and decide if in-person Mass is right for you.  The obligation for weekly Mass is still waived.

All guests who attend our Saturday/Sunday Mass offerings are required to register online at our Eventbrite link. Mass is offered in person at 5pm on Saturdays and 10 am Sundays.  Attendees are required to wear masks over their nose and mouth and have a health check to attend.

We are also open for daily Mass on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8am, and Wednesdays at noon -- no registration required for weekday masses. Learn how to register in the video below:
