    RAGBRAI is coming!

    RAGBRAI will be here in Newton on the evening of Wednesday, July 25. Sacred Heart is cooperating with the official local RAGBRAI organizers. Approximately 650 people will be camping south of our church parking lot. The parish intends to do a meal to be served in McCann Center that evening. That is presently being organized. Please try to be available to help make this a success. It will take a lot of work, but we have such good facilities and with so many people so close to us that evening we really need to make food available. Please save that date and be available to make this a grand success! Thank-you

    The Knights of Columbus are looking for families that are willing to open up their home to fellow Catholics who are riding Ragbrai. They will be in town on Wednesday, July 25th. The floor would be excellent! Some may even have tents to sleep in. If possible they would like to shower. Anyone interested may email, Brian Schwenker at theschwenks@hotmail.com. Thank you in advance!

  • 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.
