    Welcome to Sacred Heart!

    Welcome to Sacred Heart to Lucas Gregory, who is our Director of Lifelong Faith Formation. He comes to us from Colorado where he was teaching in a Catholic school. His enthusiasm and dedication will be a great blessing to us at Sacred Heart. The parish will have a meet and greet for him later in the summer after his August wedding.

    Also, welcome to Chris Basinger, who has been hired as our new janitor.

    Welcome to Sacred Heart!

    Cemetery Collection

    Every year at this time—around Memorial Day—there is an appeal made to the parish on behalf of Sacred Heart Cemetery. Every time a cemetery plot is sold some of the income from that sale is put aside for Perpetual Care. You can imagine that the Perpetual Care money collected decades ago would not be near adequate for current day expenses of maintenance for the cemetery, let alone for improvements.

    The burial of the dead is a pious and holy thing, as is the care of their buried remains. The cemetery is a holy and sacred place, as it claims our bodies until the Resurrection.

    Your generous response to the appeal for Sacred Heart Catholic Cemetery 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.
