All Things Collaborative

We are a Roman Catholic Collaborative of the Archdiocese of Boston (Massachusetts). We are located at the southernmost point in the Archdioceseof Boston. Throughout the changing seasons amid the cranberry bogs, and the lakes, and fields, farms, and horses, and villages of Middleboro, and Rochester, and Lakeville have grown the three churches of Sacred Heart (est. 1885), Sts. Martha and Mary (est. 1958) , and St. Rose of Lima (est. 1961). The three churches/two parishes/three towns have come together to form the Cranberry Catholic Collaborative. We are a rural and diverse populace full of love for our growing faith community and our neighbors.
