A Little History

Immaculate Conception is the third oldest church in the diocese of Manchester.  It was originally a mission church of St. Aloyisus in Dover.  In November 1851, a priest was assigned to the 300 Catholics of Portsmouth, who organized under the title of St. Mary`s and began construction of the church in spring 1852.  In 1872, the parishioners rebuilt the church which had been destroyed by fire in 1871, renaming it Immaculate Conception.  A parish school was constructed in 1887 on Austin Street, staffed by the Sisters of Mercy; its present building dates from 1904.  Need for a larger, more structurally sound church to accommodate the growing Catholic population led to the construction of the present church, opened on Easter 1934 and dedicated in October, 1934.
