The Sacred Heart & Our Lady's Collaborative was formed on July 1, 2013. The collaboration of the two parishes (Sacred Heart, Newton Centre and Our Lady Help of Christians, Newtonville) is not simply a new structure. The collaborative is intended to be a school of discipleship, where parishioners can come to experience a renewed and heartfelt knowledge of Christ.
Our Collaborative Pastoral Plan defines our mission as a community seeking to encounter Christ, respond in love, and share the Good News. With these values we strive to be ever more Christ-centered; to have our relationship with Christ infuse all that we do. Being ever more committed disciples of Christ challenges us to take risks, reassess our priorities, and change the way we live our lives. If this is your first encounter with our community, we hope this vision resonates with your deepest longings, and we hope that this collaborative may be a place where you can become an ever better version of yourself - the version God envisions.
