    Dear brothers and sisters,

    A few years back, Pope Francis designated the third Sunday in Ordinary Time as the Sunday of the Word of God. We begin the new year realizing the importance and primacy of God’s Word in the life of every Christian.

    It just happens that this Sunday falls in the midst of two other events: the anniversary of Roe vs Wade, which legalized abortions in our country and the week of prayer for Christian Unity.

    As people who listen to the Word of God, our task is to speak for the helpless who cannot speak for themselves. Jesus, in our Gospel today tells us of his mission to bring glad tiding to the poor, oppressed, and weak. We cannot listen to God’s Word and be unchanged or indifferent to the voices of those in need among us … and this includes the unborn. The Word of God also reminds us to work with all our brothers and sisters who profess a faith in Christ and to pray for greater unity and love within the wider Christian community—Catholic, protestant, and Orthodox.

    On this Word of God Sunday, I’d like to remind us of the importance of Scripture in the life of each follower of Christ … the scriptures proclaim a person, Jesus Christ, who is the unique Word of God. Jesus who is God among us. Jesus Christ who is fully human and divine. Jesus proclaims in his life and teaching the unique gift of divine life given to us. We share this divine life through the gift of the Spirit. This same Spirit calls us to work together for unity in love, truth, strength and courage.

    Perhaps the best way to understand the readings at Mass and our response to them is offered by Saint John Paul II in his Instruction Dies Domini. He encourages “those who take part in the Eucharist—priest, ministers and faithful… to prepare the Sunday liturgy, reflecting beforehand upon the word of God which will be proclaimed” and adds that if we do not, “it is difficult for the liturgical proclamation of the word of God alone to produce the fruit we might expect” (no. 40). In this way we will till the soil, preparing our souls to receive the seeds to be planted by the Word of God so that seed may bear fruit.

    The Word of God, then calls for our listening and our response in silent reflection, as well as in word and song. Most important of all, the Word of God, which is living and active, calls each of us individually and all of us together for a response that moves beyond the liturgy itself and affects our daily lives, leading us to engage fully in the task of making Christ known to the world by all that we do and say. ***********************************************************************

    A few reminders this week:

    1. We will have our regular Mass Schedule Monday through Thursday of this week along with a special time of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 3:00PM t0 3:30 PM on Monday and Wednesday (included in this is the Divine Chaplet beginning at 3:00 PM).

    2. Please note that on Friday, longtime parishioner Willard Sally will be laid to rest from our parish. Due to his funeral on Friday, there will be no 9:00 AM Mass that morning.

    3. The finance Council and parish pastoral council met last Monday. The Diocese of Davenport will begin a capital campaign to support those studying for the priesthood as well as our retired priests in the next two years. The theme of this campaign is On this Rock. As our priests age (just take a good look at me)), and more priests retire, we want to secure funds to support their needs as well as the seminarians studying in our Diocese. Another feature of this campaign is that 20% of the monies raised will be returned back to each parish for their own needs. A lot more will be shared with you in the future. Our “wave” of the campaign will not begin until February 2023. More to come…..

    Do you know of someone interested in discovering more about the Catholic Church?

    ….or, having been baptized a Catholic, desiring to complete their initiation through the Sacrament of Confirmation? …or desiring to journey back to Catholic Church after having been away? Father Tony Herold, our pastor, will be hosting an inquiry session on Sunday, October 31. This will be an informal gathering after the 9:00 AM Mass. We will invite our guests to pick up a donut and cup of coffee or juice and join us in the Adult Room of the McCann Center. At this meeting we will do our best to answer questions, share our faith, and get to know folks who might be interested in sharing our way of life. If you would like to have Fr Tony to send a letter of invitation to someone who might be interested in joining or re-joining the church and attending this meeting, please contact him and he would be “overjoyed” to send a letter to inviting them to this gathering.

  • 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.
