    Monthly Holy Hour for the Ladies of the Parish

    We invite all ladies of the parish to our once-a-month Saturday morning holy hour. Since we no longer have Eucharistic Adoration available, we will pray before our Lord in the Tabernacle. We will continue to 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 welcome 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. Our next holy hour is Saturday, September 7th from 7:00 to 8:00 A.M. in the daily Mass chapel. Bring your rosaries, and we look forward to seeing you there.

    Sacred Heart Church is in need of volunteers to OCCASIONALLY be asked to donate cookies or bars for social activities at church or to make a meal for families in need, those celebrating the birth of a child, for church social activities, and/or funerals. We have become partners with a website that will send a request to your email when there is a need. If you want to help, all you need to do is to reply to the email once it is sent out. If you are unable to help, then you don’t need to do anything for that request. IT IS THAT SIMPLE. To have your name added to the list of people who would be willing to help out by preparing food, just send your name and email address to Tina Stammeyer at johntinastam@gmail.com and a link will be sent to you to sign up. Thank you for helping us to meet the needs of the parish through this volunteer ministry.

  • 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.
