    Memorial Day

    As we observe Memorial Day—in ways different than in the past—let us still remember and pray for those who served our nation, especially in times of war and conflict, and who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. Mass Online We have no knowledge as to when we can get back to public weekend Masses. Please continue to find Masses on line or on television, and also find whatever devotional aids suit your needs and interests. Look for Mass from Sacred Heart to be available on-line on Sunday mornings. Penteco

    COVID-19 Update

    The pastors had a conference call with the Bishop last week. No one knows how long the current restrictions and the prohibition on public Masses will last, but probably at least until sometime in June. Even when we may begin having public Masses, there will likely be significant restrictions which will limit the number who may attend due to social distancing.

    Notes from Fr. Reynolds

    Please continue to support one another with prayer; participate in Mass the best you can on line or on television, and please remember to support the parish with your finances. Find some devotional prayer or other personal prayer which is helpful to you, and try to do it daily. There is still nothing to report regarding First Communion or Confirmation.

    Message from Bishop Zinkula

    Please see the letter from Bishop Zinkula in the bulletin regarding current issues we face due to the COVID-19 virus. The bishops of Iowa have agreed that even though the governor is allowing public worship to resume, it is unwise for us to resume this now. The need to avoid gathering in groups is still a valid concern, and how we could return to weekend Masses while still requiring the social distancing which is needed would be a logistical nightmare.

    New Pastor July 1, 2020

    Bishop Zinkula announced this week the new clergy assignments effective July 1, 2020. Replacing Father Reynolds as pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Newton is the Very Rev. Anthony Herold, VG. Father Herold is currently pastor of St. Paul the Apostle Church in Davenport and is also the Vicar General of the Diocese of Davenport, the individual directly under the Bishop in terms of the administration of the Diocese. He is, as it were, the “alter ego” of the Bishop. Father Tony has also been appointed as the Dean of the Grinnell Deanery, a position which Father Reynolds now occupies. Father Reynolds has been granted retirement by Bishop Zinkula, beginning July 1, 2020. Congratulations and best wishes to Father Tony Herold.

    A Coronavirus Prayer

    Jesus Christ, you traveled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.” At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love. Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care. Heal us from our fear, which prevents nations from working together and neighbors from helping one another. Heal us from our pride, which can make us claim invulnerability to a disease that knows no border

    Prayers

    This is a time to be patient and kind to yourself and to one-another. Continue to pray, especially for those who are ill with the coronavirus, those who have been exposed, and all those who are treating the sick. We should also pray for those who are manufacturing needed medical equipment and supplies, and for those who have died, and those who will die from this illness. Pray for leaders of government around the globe.

  • 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.
