    McCann Flea Market/ Vendor Show

    Regretfully, we will be unable to hold the show this year due to the current Coronavirus circumstances. The Scholarship Fund is adequately funded to allow us to be able to give financial support to graduating seniors for continuing education costs through the application process. We hopefully will be able to resume the show in 2021.

    Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Drive

    Each year, the Newton Knights of Columbus lead a Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities (CPID), s o m e – times referred to as the Tootsie Roll drive. You will generally see several members of our council handing out Tootsie Rolls at several stores in town as well as after church and collecting donations for good causes. Social distancing guidelines prevent us from running this in the way we have in the past, but the need is still there. We are going to collect donations on-line (or through the mail) instead this year. 90% of the proceeds will go to the Newton Special Education Department. In the past, they have used the funds for technology to help children communicate or special trips to help children with independent living skills. My personal favorite part of the year is when I receive pictures from these classrooms that benefit from our donations. The other 10% will go to the Iowa Special Olympics. There are several ways to help us meet our goal of $3000 this year.

    1)Watch Facebook this week. Several members will be providing links you can click on to donate on-line.

    2) Write a check addressed to the Knights of Columbus and write “CPID” in memo. You can mail to 800 E. 18th St. Newton, IA 50208 or call Cody Muhs at 641-275-5974 to make arrangements for one of the Knights to pick up the check. Any mailed donations should be mailed by 10/5. If you have any questions, please call Cody at the number above. Thanks in advance for your help

    - Sanitize your hands when you enter the church
    - Each person will need to sit in a separate pew (unless of course you came together)
    - Each person must wear a mask

    - There is to be no singing

    - After we are done praying, we must leave the church building (there is to be no congregating inside to talk/visit with one another)

    - Sanitize the area where you sat before leaving the church
    Please bring your own copy of the Precious Life Rosary booklet (if you do not have one please feel free to visit the following link and print one out and take it with you when you leave). https://www.gratiareflections.com/wp-content/ uploads/2019/08/ Gratia_PreciousLifeRosary_printable.pdf
    We welcome you all to join us in this time of spiritual combat against the powers of darkness, which seem to be more at work in recent months. It is a marvelous opportunity to grow closer to God and to build up His kingdom on earth.

    • 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.
