    Faith Formation News

    November 30th – regular classes

    December 7th – Please plan to attend Holy Day Mass at 6:30, there will be no K-8th classes

    December 14th – regular class

    We are excited with the number of families that are joining us for the Parish Meal and the parishioners who are staying for the Parish Enrichment Sessions! However, we could use some help with serving and clean-up. We ask that you arrive a little before 5 to help with serving and the clean-up can be immediately after the meal or after the Parish enrichment session. 3 or 4 people per meal would be perfect. If you can help any particular month, please email Renny at k12shyouth@gmail.com or call the office. There will also be a sign up sheet at the meals.

    Poinsettias for Christmas

    The church decorating committee asks for your support of the parish flower fund. The flower fund is supported by donations normally given for poinsettias in memory of a loved one. The flower fund will provide the poinsettias needed to tastefully decorate for Christmas, and the additional funding will support living flowers and plants needed to decorate the church throughout all the liturgical seasons. Please consider a donation to the flower fund in memory of a loved one this Christmas. As always, the name of your loved one, and the name of the donor will be announced in the bulletin.

  • 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.
