For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Mt 18:20

"I am convinced that communications is at the heart of what the Church is all about. It is a vast communications network designed to bring people out of their isolation and estrangement and bring them individually and corporately into communion with God in Christ.”
Cardinal Avery Dulles, SJ

Fellowship and Hospitality
There are many opportunities for parishioners to come together in fellowship. Sacred Heart Ladies' Sodality sponsor Spaghetti Suppers, Ham & Bean Suppers and other events. The Knights of Columbus sponsors monthly suppers and raffles. Many other opportunities arise during the year. Please watch the bulletin for upcoming events.

Middleborough and Rochester both hold Chicken Barbecues in the spring that includes family fun and games for children, pony rides etc. At St. Rose the very popular church BBQ was held on June 12, 1961, four months prior to the official opening of St. Rose of Lima.

Sunday Hospitality
Please join us for Sunday Hospitality. We gather together in fellowship in Middleborough on the third Sunday of the month and in Rochester on the first Sunday of the month (September through June). Rochester parishioners enjoy chatting and feasting on homemade goodies while Middleborough offers coffee and doughnuts.
