Local Outreach

Mission Coalition

This is an organization of eleven Christian Churches in Newton.  The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm at the St. Luke’s Methodist Church.  Sacred Heart is represented and participates in all activities.  The group sponsors community projects and donations of mutual interest.

Past projects have included:  Crop Walk,  weekend meal delivery for Meals on Wheels, support of woman’s shelter, support for Storybook Project (project at Newton Release Center), Christmas gifts for all nursing home residents, bell ringing for Salvation Army, Lenten Luncheon, money for projects and donations are raised by the annual Pie Sale at McCann Center Flea Market.

Thanksgiving Food Baskets

Every Thanksgiving a collection of food and family needs are gathered, assembled and delivered to Sacred Heart parishioners who are in need or alone for the holidays.

Right To Life

Sacred Heart Catholic Community sponsors a variety of pro-life activities. We have Baby Bottle Campaign, participate in the Walk for Life, and sell flowers to raise money for pro-life activities. We co-sponsor forums on topics such as the death penalty and do postcard campaigns on pro-life issues. We also inform parishioners through bulletin and newsletter articles about pro-life issues and legislation as well as post topics on our web page.  Call Barb Mickelson at 792-5967 for more information.

Prison Ministries

There are two prison facilities within the boundaries of Sacred Heart Parish.  Communion Services are held at both facilities.  Inmates are provided with Reconciliation opportunities during Advent and Lent and when requested.

The Knights of Columbus provide funds for worship aids and religious articles for the inmates.  Disciples are always needed for this ministry.  Call the Stewardship Office for more information.

Food Pantry Sunday

Sacred Heart Catholic Community members are asked to bring canned foods, paper products and items such as diapers and baby food on the first Sunday of every month. Leave your donations in the grocery cart in the vestibule of the church.  Also at various times throughout the school year, the Faith Formation groups are involved in activities that will help replenish the pantry.  Your donations serve parishioners in need as well as the Salvation Army and other food banks.

Emergency Assistance

Emergency assistance is available to members of Sacred Heart Catholic Community on an “as needed” basis. Money is not given directly to the person, but bills are paid directly to the company involved. The recipient is given the opportunity to pay back the money to the parish.  If repayment is not possible, it is not required.

Sacred Heart Catholic Community cooperates with other local agencies, such as the Salvation Army and First Step, to provide aid to the needy. We also follow the guidelines set by these agencies. These guidelines have been established to prevent abuse.

Angel Tree & Advent Caring Tree

There are two opportunities to join in the spirit of giving during the Christmas season.

Early in December a Christmas tree is placed in the gathering space.  Sacred Heart parishioners are asked to decorate the tree with donations of children’s socks and underwear.  These items are then given to the Salvation Army and distributed to those in need in time for Christmas.

A second tree, the Advent Caring Tree, is placed in the back of the church and is decorated with cards that have names of Sacred Heart members who are home bound or in a nursing home. Sacred Heart also joins with other area churches to provide each nursing home resident in Newton with a Christmas present. Those names are also on cards on the tree. Parishioners are asked to select a card, take it with them, and then purchase a gift. Each card will have gift ideas and will indicate whether the gift needs to be delivered to the individual or returned to the church.
