Sister was a field worker in the Extension Department from 1935-39, 1940-44 and 1947-52. The years off from the Extension Department were used to attend Massachusetts School of Art and Design and to serve as Mistress of Postulants for the congregation. In 1952 Sister Irene took part-time studies in the field of child welfare and social work. She began full-time study at Boston College in 1953, graduating in 1956 with a Master of Science in Social Work. Until her election to serve as General Councillor in the Congregation in 1961, Sister Irene worked at Family Counselling and Guidance Centre in Boston.
