Parish Activities and News:
- Adoration is an excellent way to spend some private time with Our Lord.
The hours of Adoration are from each Wednesday following the 8:00 am Mass until Thursday morning at 0800. To sign up, call the parish secretary; Ms. Bernadette McLaughlin 603-863-1422 X 3 you will not regret it.
- Weekly Rosary Recitation on Sundays
The Rosary is prayed following the Sunday morning Mass with meditation that follows the Church's seasons as follows.
4th Sunday--World Peace
5th Sunday (4 times annually) --Holy Souls in Purgatory
The Stations of the Cross are prayed every Friday during Lent. What better way to observe the Lenten season.
Every Monday at St. Joachim Church at 6:30 p.m. the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplets are prayed. This hour is open to all and is a wonderful way to ask for and give thanksgiving for all the blessings you have received.
Masses at Newport Nursing homes
The Masses at Woodlawn Care Center and SummerCrest will be celebrated monthly. The schedule will be posted in the church bulletin.
Programs for the next 2 months
Blessing of the Throats
February 3rd is the Feast of St. Blaise, an Armenian physician,
bishop, and martyr from the 4th Century. Many miracles were
attributed to St. Blaise, including the healing of a young girl who
was choking, and this is why St. Blaise is the patron saint of those
suffering from ailments of the throat. We ask for his intercession
for the healing of any kind in a special way on his feast with the traditional
blessing of the throats. The blessing of the throats will take place at
the end of the 8:00 am Mass on Monday, February 3rd
