New Gift Shop Opens at Saint Joseph Cathedral

MANCHESTER, NH, September 23, 2023 – Very Reverend Jason Jalbert, Rector and Pastor of Saint Joseph Cathedral, blessed the opening of the new Cathedral Gift Shop, which held its grand opening and ribbon cutting on Saturday. Located in the parish rectory at 145 Lowell Street, the gift shop was established in response to the closing of the privately-owned Cathedral Church Goods.

The gift shop features religious items, including books, gifts, greeting cards, devotionals, and home décor.

“The Cathedral Gift Shop will be a ministry of the parish, offering religious items which will cater to the spiritual needs of the Catholic faithful, so that they can deepen their relationship with Jesus,” said Rev. Jalbert. “I see this shop as an extension of our mission of evangelization within the wider community of lifelong Catholics, new Catholics, and soon-to-be Catholics.”

The Cathedral Gift Shop will operate Monday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with extended hours on Wednesdays (until 5:30 p.m.) and Saturdays (until 3:30 p.m.).
