In the summer of 2015, on the Eve of the Year of Mercy, two of our parishioners, husband and wife, formed a group to perform the Spiritual Work of Mercy of Praying for the Living and the Dead.
It is impossible to aid the many people – even those in our own families – who need our help. But, we can reach out to them in prayer. All people, whether gone to the Lord or still with us, benefit from prayer, including those who are praying. We hope you'll join us!
Saturday mornings, rain or shine, 9 AM
Gather with other parishioners to pray the Rosary while walking through our cemetery, praying for souls in purgatory, as well as for people who may be "imprisoned" by their various addictions or afflictions. We alternate between our St. John the Baptist cemetery and the cemetery of Holy Rosary Church in Hooksett, each Saturday morning of summer, and on until the weather gets colder and participants have a hard time feeling their rosary beads with numb fingers!
Our Rosary Walks take place at 9 AM sharp on Saturday mornings. In case of inclement weather, we will gather in the cemetery chapel on the St. John the Baptist days and inside Holy Rosary Church on the Hooksett days.

The St. John the Baptist Evangelizers also led us in praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet before every weekend Mass during the season of Lent and on Divine Mercy Sunday. They erected a picture of that Divine Image in our sanctuary, helping us all better reflect upon the infinite mercy flowing from the heart of Jesus to everyone who is willing to receive.
