The Archdiocese of Boston continues the process of forming collaboratives among its 289 parishes. The Disciples in Mission plan, announced a few years ago following broad consultation across the archdiocese, is the umbrella that embraces not only the creation of the various collaboratives but also the ongoing formation of the clergy, religious and lay staff members in them.
