About Us

Coming to Christ in Community

The parishes of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and St. Leo were "twinned" in the early 1990's under the pastorship of Rev. Paul D. Montminy.  Since that time, members of our parishes have collaborated together in programs such as the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults), youth faith formation, and even our very successful Christmas Fair.  Although the parishes act independently, our communities are joined through the common pastorship as well as use of a common Administrative Office located in the Rectory Offices of 189 N. Main St. in Rochester.  St. Leo's Church offers the quaint wooden structure of churches of an earlier time, while Our Lady of the Holy Rosary features a more modern look and feel.  Together, the parishes serve roughly 1800 families in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire.

What do the Facilities offer?

The complex at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary also offers a modern Parish Center which houses a large function hall, teaching classrooms, a free-loan library, and a bookstore, as well as a perpetual Adoration Chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is exposed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year except for the Triduum prior to Easter Sunday.

St. Leo's Church houses the very popular St. Leo's Catholic Children's Center in its basement which also serves as a gathering space for pot-luck luncheons and other activities.
