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.
Although hats and mittens are great, if you'd like to have more than just a warm feeling in your heart while at Mass, please consider donating to our boiler fun! We need to keep our wonderful old church in good health – and our fingers from freezing! You can safely and easily donate online by clicking HERE.
We invite you to browse through our website to learn some history (including photos) get the latest news from the Vatican, or read the Scripture for today. Discover our liturgical ministries, social organizations, and local charities that we help – and consider getting involved. Let us richly live our lives of faith.
For the latest news from our parish, including
upcoming Knights of Columbus Suppers (always delicious)
