    Dear Friends,

    Where has all the time gone? It is hard to believe that we are already at the fifth Sunday of Lent. The readings today help us look forward to the great feast of Easter as Jesus proclaims Himself to be the “Resurrection and the Life.” And so He is! This Sunday we have an opportunity to renew that life within us as we celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

    This Sunday afternoon at 2:00 PM, four priests will be available to celebrate this great Sacrament of God’s forgiveness and mercy with us. I do hope you will be able to join us for this outpouring of God’s mercy. Discover for yourselves the new life Christ brings!

    The Case for Jesus

    Tuesday evenings beginning February 28 at 6:30 pm

    Do you follow Jesus ‘on the way’? Can we trust the Gospels? Do we really know who wrote them? Do the Gospels communicate truth – or fabricated fables? Who is Jesus? Who did Jesus claim to be? Join Dr. Brant Pitre as he draws evidence from both early Christian and non-Christian writings attesting to the authenticity, authorship, and dating of the Gospels, and as he gives an indepth look at the Gospel accounts of Jesus’s Crucifixion, Resurrection, and the proclamation of Christ’s divinity. Dr. Pitre’s powerful presentation will strengthen your faith so that you can not only stand firm and profess that Jesus truly is “the Christ, the Son of the living God,” but also confidently respond to any skeptics you encounter.

    This study consists of nine sessions, and the group will meet for these via Zoom

    Fearless and Free Bible study

    Friday Mornings beginning February 24 at 9:45 am

    Based on the Book of Ephesians, Fearless and Free Bible study focuses on healing and wholeness. Author Lisa Brenninkmeyer designed this Bible study for any woman confronting the reality that life isn’t easy. When suffering slams into you and leaves you reeling, or you feel great one day and down on the mat the next, turn to this Scripture study.

    In these six compassionate lessons, you’ll learn how just the right passages in Scripture can waken you to the reality of who you are in Christ. You’ll be coached as you wrestle with the battle in your mind and finally, be strengthened as the warrior to reclaim your footing and move forward in life, grounded in the truth of Scripture. This is not about surviving; it’s about flourishing in Christ’s love.

    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.

    There is no preparation necessary prior to meeting each week. It is encouraged to read the upcoming Mass readings prior to meeting, but not necessary.

  • 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.
