Sunday Mass Obligation has been reinstated!


from Bishop Libasci:

"As was the case before the pandemic, those who are sick should not attend Mass. This would include those who recently have been exposed to COVID or any other communicable illness. These individuals are excused but of course, should not be attending other events that would pose the same concerns. A mother’s words ring true: “If you’re too sick to go to church, you’re too sick to go out and play.”"

Ever Ancient, Ever New

Can you believe that our parish, in just two years, will be celebrating 150 years of serving God and neighbor?

Our venerable church has seen many improvements in just the last few years —

a new roof, repaired choir loft and spruced up organ,

new carpeting, and new flooring and paint in the sanctuary.

In less than a year, we have mourned the passing of two priests: our administrator, Fr. Adrien, and, very recently, our priest-in-residence, Fr. Finnigan. We remember them with sorrow and joy in our hearts, grateful that they have been part of our parish family and confident that they are being received into heavenly glory.

And now, we joyfully welcome our new pastor and parochial vicar,

Fr. Michael Gendron and Fr. David Gagnon!

May God bless them as they gather the faithful in this time of renewal, to minister to our community, and to lead us into the dawn of the next 150 years…

God is good.


Our roof has, thankfully, been replaced, and we appreciate all donations toward this cause! We still have to pay off the  large bill, however, so we need your continued support.

Please check out our newest bulletin for any new fundraisers and consider taking part. 

Donations to the roof fund can be made by mail: 10 School St., Allentown, NH 03275. Or if you are attending write "roof fund" on an envelope and place it in the collection box or basket. You can also donate safely and securely online! Just click "Online giving" in the top menu, then scroll down to click "make a donation" under "Roof". Thank you!
