    Advent

    Next weekend we begin the new liturgical year with the first Sunday of Advent. This is a new year of grace and favor in our Lord Jesus Christ. Remember please to keep Christmas in Christmas. This is the Advent Season, not the Christmas season. This is a time to anticipate and prepare for the Nativity of the Lord, as a reminder of our own personal need to prepare for meeting the Lord, whether in death or at the end of the world.

    Opportunity Knocks!!

    “Poor working conditions, unfair wages, human trafficking, production methods and materials that harm the environment— these are business practices are more common than you think. That’s why it’s important to buy ethically traded products” Jake Lyell CRS We are offering another opportunity for each to make a significant impact on the lives of others. By your purchase of any of our Fair Trade items, we DO make a difference. Each craftsperson is given a fair wage for the work that they do to create their product. During this time of giving, consider giving safe work environment, fair wages and relief from fear of abusive employers by your decision to purchase products insuring those simple values. A selection of these items will be for sale for three weekends starting the weekend of November 18-19.

  • 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.
