    Be on a RAGBRAI Dinner Crew!

    RAGBRAI guests will be in Newton on Wednesday, July 25! The parish will make enough lasagna, a pre-dressed salad, garlic bread, and pie to serve 1,000 meals that evening! We need your help with this event!!! Several volunteer opportunities are still available to help with the fundraising efforts. All volunteers will receive a Serving the Lord and Serving You t-shirt to wear the night of the event and keep for future events. Stop by to talk with Suzy Trotter, Jim or Deb Nilles after Mass in the gathering space to sign up to be on a RAGBRAI Dinner Crew! Salad Vegetables Wanted: The RAGBRAI dinner will serve a pre-dressed salad with fresh salad vegetables. Gardeners are encouraged to bring clean salad vegetables to the church on Tuesday, July 24 to be prepared for the serving. The funds raised by the RAGBRAI dinner will be used toward the repair of the organ. It is forty years old now, and needs some maintenance, the kind of maintenance that is done only once in forty years or so. Bishop Zinkula is riding RAGBRAI and will be staying at the rectory that evening. His biking group of about 20 others will be staying at places around town. The bishop will celebrate Mass at 6:00 in the church on that evening.

    Monthly Adoration Hour for the Ladies of the Parish

    We are continuing our once-amonth Saturday morning hour of Adoration and prayer for all the ladies of the parish. During this hour of Eucharistic Adoration, we pray a rosary for an end to abortion, euthanasia, human trafficking, genocide, and all other forms of abuse and exploitation of people throughout the world. We also pray a Chaplet of Divine Mercy in reparation for our sins and the sins of the world. We invite you all to join us in this time of spiritual combat against the powers of darkness. It is a marvelous opportunity to grow closer to God and to build up His kingdom on earth. We will meet on the first Saturday of the month form 7:00 to 8:00 A.M. in the daily Mass chapel. If we have enough ladies, we will move to the main church. Our next session will be Saturday, January 6. Bring your rosaries, and we look forward to seeing you there.

  • 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.
