Gate of Heaven Parish is here to help you deepen your friendship with Jesus Christ and to live the beauty of our Catholic faith. If you are new to the faith, searching for meaning and purpose in your life, or have been away from the Church for any reason, we welcome you with open arms. Here we meet Jesus in the scriptures and teachings of the Church, in our sacraments and worship, and in our love for one another. Our parish is a family and we hope that you can join us!
Our five churches in the beautiful North Country of New Hampshire serve as places of worship, prayer, growing in faith, community, and service to our neighbor. Fr. Matt, the parish staff, and our many parishioners are here to welcome you and answer any questions you might have. Let us know how we can serve you.
Almighty Father, you have firmly established your love for Gate of Heaven Parish and for each of us. We praise and thank you for placing us amid the deep beauty of the North Country, a beauty that speaks eloquently of your glory and calls us to acknowledge your greatness and love.
O Lord, you have given our parish the opportunity and challenge of coming together as family, to be ambassadors of your grace to one another and to our farthest neighbor. Grant us to respond lovingly and obediently to your call to seek justice in all our actions, to serve the poor in body and soul, and to share the good news of your Son, Jesus.
O Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, inflame our hearts with your love. Broaden our vision and open our hearts to what you are bringing about. Set our parish and the whole North Country on fire with your Holy Spirit, to bring about a renewed flourishing of our Catholic faith. Amen.
