    Infant Baptism Preparation: Oct.5th

    The first step for parents wishing to have an infant child baptized at Sacred Heart is to attend a Baptism prep session. At the session parents discuss the responsibility involved in having a child baptized and share ideas on living out their commitment to raise their children in the Catholic faith. The next Baptism Preparation Session will be on Thursday, October 5th at 6:30 p.m. in the adult room in the McCann Center. For more information, or to register, please contact Luke Gregory, our Director of Lifelong Faith Formation in the Faith Formation office

    Be Not Afraid; Be a Catechist

    Is Jesus calling you to serve His children and His Church this year? We are still looking for catechists to co-teach during Wednesday night faith formation sessions from 6-7 p.m. As Jesus tells us, “Do not be afraid!” All that is required is a desire to teach children about God’s love and the teachings of his Holy Catholic Church. All of the lesson plans and materials are laid out for you, as well as help from the faith formation team. Remember, God doesn’t call the equipped, he equips the called. Do you feel nervous about being in a classroom? We’ll help you. Feeling nervous that you don’t know all the teachings of the church? We’ll guide you. Feeling unsure about how best to provide for our youth? We’ll train you. All it takes is a willing heart and an openness to God’s grace. Please consider volunteering for one hour a week during this school year. You will make a huge difference in the lives of the children in our parish, and you will also grow in your relationship with God. Contact Tim Stammeyer at (641) 792-2050 or shk8faith@gmail.com with any questions and to talk about the opportunity.

  • 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.
