Welcome to St. John the Baptist's website! Here, we share information, news, and inspiration as part of the New Evangelization in our historic parish – which has been ministering to the people of the Suncook Valley for over 140 years.  Part of the Diocese of Manchester, NH, we serve parishioners from Allenstown, Pembroke, and Epsom, as well as Deerfield, Hooksett, Bow, Concord, and beyond.  New families are welcome!  See Mass Times below.

If eternity has no beginning and no end, then Eternal Life has already begun.  The kingdom of God is truly at hand!  We each ask ourselves, "How is my immortal soul?"  Believing in Jesus Christ and faithful to the Teachings of his Catholic Church, we strive to lovingly serve God and neighbor – and ask the Lord's forgiveness for the times that we fail to love.  Christ, who is Love Incarnate, gives himself perpetually to us in the Eucharist and mercifully offers us redemption, the way to eternal joy with him.  If you’ve never been to our church, or if you haven’t been in a while, we hope that you come and participate with us in the Sacred Liturgy of the Mass.

Through the Season of Lent, we will have our regular weekend Masses

as well as special services and extra Masses.
