    Parish Charities Collection

    During the month of November each year we have a special collection to support our local charitable outreach. There are frequently people who come to McCann Center seeking assistance. We receive requests for gas, auto repairs, rent assistance, security deposits, food, electric bills, medical care, transportation, etc. The parish is not always able to respond to each request, and is not always able to respond as fully as the individual might like the parish to respond. Your generous contributions to this annual fund will help the parish to respond to the needy of the community and those who are passing through. A second collection will be taken the weekend of November 24th & 25th for this purpose.

    New Cemetery Road

    The Sacred Heart Cemetery Committee is pleased to announce the completion of a new road at Sacred Heart Cemetery. The older (northern) section of the cemetery is nearly filled, or most of the remaining lots are already sold. The new road is in the southern section of the cemetery, installed with the hope of selling lots in this nearly unused area. The construction of this road was made possible due to the generosity of Betty Dickenson, whose bequest to the cemetery in her will funded the construction of the road. As we remember in thanksgiving this great gift from Betty, we encourage others to remember Sacred Heart Church or the Cemetery in your estate planning.

  • 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.
