Scrap iron, machinery, cars, trucks, industrial scrap, aluminum, brass, copper, catalytic converters, insulated wire, lead, batteries, electric motors, radiator, stainless steel, etc. Sacred Heart Youth will take it! The youth are fund raising for Faith Journey next summer and National Catholic Youth Conference, which is every two years. There will be a roll off container available October 25th & 26th in the Sacred Heart Church parking lot to collect any scrap steel donations. If you prefer not to haul it yourself, we will pick it up! We can pick up any scrap steel items you want to donate on Sunday, October 26th from 10:00-2:00. We’ll then take all metal scraps we collect to Gralnek-Dunitz Co., who’ll give us pricing normally reserved for higher volume accounts. This money will go a long way toward helping our group and also our planet! Saving even the smallest piece of metal can really help! Please contact Renny at email@example.com or call 641-792-2050.Scrap Steel Collection October 25th & 26th

The parish will offer training for adults who wish to assist as altar servers at Mass. We are not abandoning the practice of youthful servers, but wish to also include adults who may wish to serve. Perhaps a mother, and/or father would like to serve with their children. Our deacon candidate, Rob Garber, is required to gain experience serving at Mass this year, so expect to see him serving in the near future. Those who are interested in serving please identify yourself to Father Reynolds.Adult Altar Server Training

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.
