    2019 Lenten Small Groups

    The Sunday morning small group will begin March 10th at 10:15 AM. The group will study Matthew, the King and His Kingdom. This exciting study brings the Gospel to life and draws you closer to Christ. You will see Jesus as the awaited Messiah who fulfills the promises and prophecies of the Old Testament, establishes the New Law, and inaugurates the Kingdom of Heaven. Set in the rich context of Jesus’ life, Matthew shows us who Jesus is and what his life and teachings mean for us today.

    The Sunday evening small group will begin March 10th, Sunday evening at 7:00 PM. The group will study Sunday by Sunday. Sunday by Sunday is a way to reflect on the Gospels throughout the Liturgical year. Sunday by Sunday is a publication of the Sisters of St. Joseph in St. Paul, Minnesota. It begins and ends with prayer. Its questions inspire adults to share the faith they live, and to wrestle with what Jesus in the Gospels asks of us in our time, in our neighborhoods, in our world.

    The Friday morning small group will begin March 8th at 9:45 AM. The group will study The Wild Goose. Join Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR in this captivating video series which is awakening God’s love and transforming power in the hearts of all who participate. Discover the Holy Spirit who has been revealed to us by Jesus Christ and who leads us to our heavenly Father. This adventure consists of Fr. Dave speaking on an attribute of the Holy Spirit, a practical application on how to respond to the Holy Spirit and testimonies of people from across the country who lives have been impacted by the Sprit of God.

    The Tuesday evening small group will resume the second part of their study on The Wild Goose by Fr. Dave Pivonka on Tuesday, March 12 at 6:30 pm in the adult room in McCann Center.

    The Thursday small group will resume the second part of its study on C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity on Thursday, March 7 at 1:30 pm. The group will meet in the adult room in McCann Center.

  • 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.
