    School Supply Drive

    The Social Action Commission is collecting supplies for the Newton Community preschool and the local elementary schools. Many students come to class in need of supplies and other materials. Teachers often have to spend their own money to buy these additional items for their students. Listed in the bulleting are classroom and student materials, and other supplies teachers need throughout the school year. Collection boxes for these items will be in the Gathering Space and in McCann Center. The commission is grateful for any donation that you can give to this worthy cause. Cash donations will be accepted at the parish office. We would like these supplies by Monday, August 13th.

    • 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.
