Pilgrims for Life

While there will be no diocesan pilgrimage to the national March for Life this year (2022), other related works of mercy must continue. We’ve created “Pilgrims for Life” to help the faithful of New Hampshire build up the culture of life and help moms in need in the Diocese of Manchester.

Bishop's Letter

Despite the change in how we observe the national March for Life this year, Bishop Libasci has continued his annual practice of addressing a letter to pilgrims.

Walking with Moms in Need

In 2020, the year of the 25th anniversary of Evangelium Vitae, the USCCB launched the Walking with Moms in Need initiative. Walking with Moms in Need challenges us, “Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be ‘islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.’ Everyone in the parish community should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need.” In this spirit, we are working to compile a list of resources for pregnant and parenting moms in need throughout New Hampshire.

Local pregnancy centers rely on the generosity of those in their communities to continue serving moms and families in need. Please see the following list of pregnancy center needs and consider making a donation today!
