Join Bishop Libasci for Manchester March for Life Mass

Hundreds of pilgrims from all over New Hampshire will travel to Washington, DC for the March for Life. On January 27, 2017 at 12:10 p.m., Bishop Peter A. Libasci will celebrate Mass at Saint Joseph Cathedral, 145 Lowell Street, Manchester to join our prayers in New Hampshire for a world where every human life is valued and protected with those who will march in Washington. After Mass, the bells of the Cathedral will toll 44 times, once for each year since the Roe v. Wade decision.

Support Our Seminarians

We've all heard the expression, "The future is in your hands." Never before has this been more true. As one generation of priests is preparing to retire, our diocese is helping to educate the next generation. Education comes at a price. The diocese invests approximately $300,000 annually on tuition, room and board for our seminarians and the annual Seminarian Collection is the primary source of that funding.
