Our Parish

Saint Christopher's is a welcoming parish with beautiful liturgical worship, a thriving school, and many opportunities for people of all ages to live out their faith. Everything we do is firmly rooted in God’s Word in the Sacred Scriptures and the Sacred Tradition of the Catholic Church. Jesus Christ’s real presence in the Holy Eucharist is the living heart of our parish that brings to life all of our prayers, ministries, and endeavors.

More about the Parish

Brief History

Shortly after World War II, the people of St. Patrick’s Parish foresaw the need for a new parish in the north of Nashua. On July 21, 1950, Most Rev. Matthew F. Brady, Bishop of the Diocese of Manchester, established St. Christopher Parish. In 2000, St. Christopher’s celebrated its 50th anniversary with an Anniversary Mass celebrated by Bishop John McCormack and the living former pastors of the parish.

Our Campus

The parish office and rectory are located in the historic mid-1800's grey house adjacent to the church.

The church hall is located under the church and can be accessed by the interior stairs on either side of the front of the church or by stairs at the main entrance. Restrooms are located in the church hall.

The Sister Mary Leon Pennell Center is the light grey house adjacent to the rectory and is home to many of our ministry groups and clubs.

The school is located behind the church and is accessed through the main entrance on Cushing Ave. The new Fine Arts Center is located in the grey house connected to the Pennell Center.

The parish has three parking lots — next to the church on Manchester St., behind the school off Cushing Ave. and behind the Pennell Center.
