    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.

    Advent

    This weekend we begin the holy season of Advent. Advent is not a penitential season, but is a season of preparation; preparing to meet Christ at the celebration of his birth which we celebrate on Christmas—and more importantly—preparing to meet and encounter Christ in our daily lives, at the moment of our death, and at the end of the ages when Christ returns in glory. We should try, without being boorish, to respect the integrity of the liturgical seasons, and keep Advent in Advent and Christmas in Christmas. The Christmas season ends with the celebration of the Baptism of the Lord, on January 12.

    The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception

    The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is celebrated on December 8, and is a holyday of obligation for Catholics. This is the patronal Feast day for the United States of America. However, this year, since that date falls on a Sunday, the observation of the Solemnity is transferred to Monday, December 9, and the obligation to attend Mass that day is abrogated. Mass will be celebrated at Sacred Heart at 7:00 p.m., but there is no obligation, just encouragement, for the faithful to attend Mass that day.

    Local Charities Collection at McCann Center

    In the envelope packet this month is the annual collection for local charities. This collection provides the funds that the parish can use to disburse to people who come to the parish office seeking assistance. An individual must complete a form for assistance which is reviewed by Father Reynolds with the individual. Father Reynolds alone decides about disbursing charity funds. On a recent day Father Reynolds was responding for requests for charitable assistance from noon till after 3:30. This was not customary, but there are multiple requests for charitable assistance each week. Your generous response to this annual collection provides the funds for our church to help those who come to the parish offices seeking assistance. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated.

  • 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.
