History

The Roman Catholic community of the greater Portsmouth area, which formerly consisted of three parishes served by multiple priests, now exists as a single parish, which includes the parochial school, cemetery, properties, and infrastructure created by the three former parishes.  Since June, 2006, the three former Portsmouth parishes, Immaculate Conception, St. Catherine of Siena, and St. James, have become one parish served by one pastor.  The unified Catholic community of Portsmouth is now known as Corpus Christi Parish, though the three churches retain their original names.  All three “campuses” are fully involved in the life of the parish.
