“Making All Things New!”
We believe we are one with all peoples, cultures and creation in the ancient longing to find and to live in peace.
Rooted in the Franciscan tradition, the Mt. Irenaeus community is committed to simple, joyful, healing communion with God and all creation through contemplation and the communal experience of God’s justice, love and peace in contemporary everyday life. Life at Mt. Irenaeus is centered on attending to what is primary: presence to God, others, one’s self and earth. All who participate in the mission of the Mountain join with Jesus Christ in “making all things new” by creating and nourishing a community that transcends a particular place, opening to all peoples, ages and cultures.

April snow did not keep our guests from showing! From five or six different states and the Bahama Islands; Freeport- our Chapel filled Yesterday; Devine Mercy Sunday. Behind me here, all around and in our house when all came down for brunch- We could feel high cheer of being here with one another. The Spirit was so strong and filled us with joyful longing to share the food that came up the hill and in the door. This bread of fellowship - Blessed and broken in our House of Peace, will go from here to the least of our brothers and sisters. Overcoming what keeps us apart, is our healing as two hearts meet and risk the deep journey of friendship. Finding truth and trust in each other’s eyes, we will make a new Earth by birthing bonds beyond boarders. We, each, will find and offer freedom and wellbeing beginning again from where we now stand. #fullchurch #FreeportBahamas #stBonaventureUniversity #freedomday #newearth
