Mary, Assumed Into Heaven

Mass is planned for August 15, 2024, on the Feast of the Assumption, a holy day of obligation.  Watch here for details to come later.


There is not a regular Mass schedule.  

Please check often for announcements of upcoming Masses.

For those unfamiliar with Traditional Latin Mass, a Low Mass is said quietly, while a High Mass is sung (Missa Cantata) with incense.

The Traditional Latin Mass is also known as the TLM, Mass of the Ages, Old Rite, Tridentine Mass, Classical Form of the Roman Rite, Extraordinary Form, Usus Antiquior, and Pre-Conciliar liturgy, and follows the 1962 Missal.

Mass helpers are available in the vestibule at St. Irenaeus; however, one does not have to follow along with a missal, nor understand the Latin and postures, to pray the Mass well.

Parking is available along the street and near the basement entry.

A handicap entrance is located on the southwest side of the building off of North 2nd Street, and accessible bathrooms are in the vestibule.

A cry room is located near the choir loft.

The confessional is the in the back of the church, with the waiting line along the back wall.  Ask an usher if/when a priest is hearing confessions.

Please dress modestly and practice reverence. 

What earlier generations held as sacred remains sacred and great for us too,
and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden and even considered harmful.
