    Sunday Morning Coffee

    A perfect time to grab a cup of coffee and chat with all those folks we haven’t seen or talked to for such a long time is after the 9 AM Mass! As you know, serving coffee and rolls is an important part of building community and welcoming newcomers. Many of us are looking forward to spending time with each other in this relaxing and pleasant atmosphere.

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    Last Sunday was fun! So good to see families enjoying themselves at our Fall Festival. I was so glad to see a variety of folks coming together last Sunday—young and old, singles and families. Considering the challenges we continue to face with our common COVID reality, everyone had a great time. To top it all off, our youth raised over $2000 through the auction!

    I found this piece of inspiration which goes well with themes present in our Scripture readings this weekend:

    Greatness, in Jesus’ view, is found in our willingness to accept, welcome and serve those who are considered unacceptable by reason of class, color, religion, wealth, or culture.

    We must welcome people the way a child welcomes them before he is taught discrimination. If we are to be truly great, we must be ready to accept four challenges: (1) to put ourselves last, (2) to be the servant of all, (3) to receive the most insignificant human beings with love, and (4) to expect nothing in return.

    During the holy Mass let us pray for the true spirit of service, for an attitude of love for those around us. May the Holy Spirit help us to become truly great through humble, selfless service.

    St. Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa) puts it like this: “Be the living expression of God’s kindness through humble service; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile and kindness in your warm greeting.” Here is the motto of the Missionaries of Charity, the order of nuns founded by Mother Teresa:

    The fruit of Silence is Prayer. The fruit of Prayer is Faith.

    The fruit of Faith is Love.

    The fruit of Love is Service.

    And the fruit of Service is Peace.

    A final note: May I ask you to say a prayer for my good friend Fr. Marty Goetz, a priest from our Diocese who is pastor in Burlington, Iowa and is undergoing treatments for cancer? He is a great priest and a very dear friend. He is asking folks to pray a “Hail Mary” for him each day. Thanks so much! God bless….

    Fr. Tony Herold

  • 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.
