The Sacred Heart Church, Rectory, School and Convent make up an historic Roman Catholic church complex at 6th and Thorndike Streets in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The church was built in the 1870s and 1880s to serve the parish first organized as the St. John the Evangelist Parish in 1842. The rectory was added in 1885, and the convent and school followed in 1902. The church is a Medieval Gothic structure designed by P. W. Ford. The complex occupies an entire city block,[2] and has been partly taken over for Cambridge city school administration.

The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
