    Fr. Dorau’s Mass of Thanksgiving

    On Saturday morning, May 27, Deacon Dan Dorau was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Amos. You may recall that he was here at Sacred Heart three summers ago, doing a job-shadowing with Father Reynolds. Father Dan Dorau will preside at the 9:00 Pentecost Mass next Sunday, June 4. This is a special occasion for the parish to host a newly ordained priest presiding at Mass.

    There will be a reception for Fr. Dorau and a brunch for everyone after Mass. There will be a basket for cards or gifts at the reception.

    Sewing Needed

    The purificator is the white napkin-like cloth used to wipe the chalice after an individual partakes of the Precious Blood at Communion. We have a number of older purificators which have hems that need to be replaced. The task is simple. Cut off the present hem and make a new hem. We would welcome some volunteers for this. Please contact the parish office.

    Faith Formation Year End

    We would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to our Catechists this year! Without your dedication, we could not have a Faith Formation Program. Leading a class takes more than just the hour they commit to be with the chil-dren each week. They spend time preparing lessons and preparing themselves to pass on their faith. If you get a chance, please thank them also.

    Kindergarten – Casey O’Roake
    1st Grade – Mandy Klein & Esmerelda Leon
    2nd Grade – Cathy DeHaai & Mindy Weber
    3rd Grade – Lori Faidley & Charity Noe
    4th Grade – Jeff & Donna Maki
    5th/6th Grade – MaryBeth Lawson & Michelle Thayer

    A big thank you to the Knights of Columbus for all their help throughout the year and especially for our kick-off in the fall and the end of year picnic.

    We would also like to thank all those that helped with our Wednesday meals and especially Barb Burg. We were blessed with her wonderful catering and culinary skills for most of our Wednesday meals. If you missed these this year, be sure to come next year.

    Thanks also to Ann Ratliff, Dean Baker and Chris Basinger . Their support and expertise help keep our program running each week.

  • 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.
