    RCIA Sessions

    Are you or someone you know interested in learning more about our Catholic faith? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program exists to help those adults who are interested in learning more about or joining the Catholic Church. The RCIA process is a period of reflection, prayer, instruction, discernment, and formation. There is no set timetable, and those who join the process are encouraged to take as much time as they need. However, on average the process takes about eight months for those who have never been baptized. Those who enter the process are expected to begin attending Sunday mass, attend a weekly RCIA session, and to become increasingly more involved in the activities of the parish community. Interviews are now being scheduled for those interested indi-viduals! The first session of the year will be on Tuesday, September 16th at 7 p.m. in the McCann Center. Please contact the Director of Lifelong Faith Formation, Joe Fey, for more information at the Parish Office at 792-2050! (Sessions for Children can also be scheduled for those students of catechetical age who have missed sacraments! Call for more information!)

  • Welcome to the website of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, located in Newton, Iowa.

    This is a Roman Catholic Church in the Diocese of Davenport. The church is located at 1115 South 8th Avenue East, in the southeast quadrant of Newton.

    Sacred Heart is a vibrant Catholic Community, living its Eucharistic faith in the risen Jesus, proclaimed in word and deed, celebrated in worship and sacrament, and shared in outreach to the parish community, to the diocesan and universal church,  and to the wider secular community.

    Our social center, staff offices, and administrative offices are housed in the McCann Center, dedicated in 1969 to the memory of the Rev. Msgr. Thomas J. McCann, who served as pastor here from 1910-1960.

    The church was dedicated in 1976 and was renovated in 2005, when a courtyard was enclosed to create a gathering space at the entrance to the church. This project included a new sacristy, a day chapel, and the creation of handicapped accessible restrooms. The key element of this construction is the addition of a flowing water baptistry, which also serves as our holy water font.

    Please spend some time browsing our website, but more importantly, come and visit us in person and join us in the celebration of the holy Eucharist. May God bless you this day and always.
