St. Irenaeus Ministries was invited to be a guest on the Life on the
Rock program on EWTN on September 4, 2008. This is a recording of that
portion of the program.
St. Irenaeus Ministries is a Rochester, NY based apostolate promoting
orthodox Catholic faith named after St. Irenaeus, an early Christian
bishop and writer only two generations removed from the time Christ
walked the earth who spoke out against heresies. We discuss our
activities, with special focus on the practical implications of
evangelization, such as conversion. Special attention must also be paid

challenging men and women through ministries such as Bible study,
discipleship counsel, fellowship, and religious teaching, which are
It is the duty of all Christians to bring the message of Christ to the
world, not just through programs, but by bringing the message out of
the pews and shining forth Christ to everyone we meet, personally and
one-on-one. Christ’s message is a radical one and requires a radical
commitment to His message, and we need brethren to encourage us.
