    Request for Beads

    During the mission to El Salvador, we want to provide young girls with a packet of beads so they can make necklaces, bracelets or other craft items. Some beads have already been purchased, but many more are needed. We are asking your help in obtaining more beads. Please consider donating any loose beads or seldom used necklaces, bracelets, etc. which can be taken apart and reused. Please place your items in the marked basket in the gathering space. You can be sure you will be putting a smile on a little girls face as she receives her very own beads. Thank you.

    P.S. The young boys will be receiving gifts also.

    Keeping parents up to date and in touch with what we are covering in class, as well as a more efficient way of notifying you of what’s going on – we will be using the Remind App to send out text messages.

    You have the option of installing an app or just receiving text messages. If you have a Smartphone and would like to get push notifications – type the code in the App column into your browser. Follow the instructions to sign up for Remind. You’ll be prompted to download the mobile app. If you would just like to receive texts – message the codes under the Text column to the number 81010

  • 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.
