    As some of you are already aware, Joe Purvis has cancer and it has spread to his liver, pelvic bones, and lymph nodes by his neck/shoulder. The family knew, if the cancer returned, it would not be something they would be able to cure. Joe has been diagnosed as terminal, and has been given approximately 3-6 months to live. There is one last treatment that Joe is going to try. It’s a new drug recently approved to be used for melanoma called PD1. It is available to Joe, but is not covered by insurance because it has not been approved to be used for his type of cancer. It is new and the data on it only goes out 18 months. Joe’s oncologist said Joe has a 50/50 chance that it will either stop the growth of the cancer or possibly shrink it. Joe will be able to start this new drug next week. He will get it every two weeks for two months, and then will have scans to see if it’s working. If it shows it’s working, he will continue on this drug. If it doesn’t show signs of working, he will probably make the decision to stop it at that point. Please continue to keep Joe, Stacey, and their kids in your thoughts and prayers. Pray for the drug to work, and slow the spread of Joe’s cancer; allowing him more time with his family and friends, And, pray that the insurance company will cover some if not all of the cost of the drug; taking the financial burden off of his family. Joe and Stacey have been blown away by the generosity of family and friends! To those of you who have donated so far, thank you! Every bit will help Joe, Stacey and the kids during this time! If you would like to help, go to the website at: http://www.gofundme.com/purvisfamilyfund.

  • 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.
