About Sacred Heart School
Sacred Heart School Rowta is an integral part of Catholic Church Rowta which was established in the year 1977 by Rt. Rev. Joseph Mittathany DD, Archbishop Emeritus of Imphal. The need for a Parish was first strongly felt by the local community in Bajrajhar due to many pastoral difficulties they faced as they were under Catholic Church, Udalguri. The community sent a 5-member representative to Bishop to initiate talk for s separate Parish. It was 3 to 4 rounds of dialogue, Bishop finally declared Rowta as a new Parish in the year 1977 and Fr. Mathew Kunnath was appointed as the first Parish Priest of Catholic Church Rowta.
Bajrajhar community already had a church built by Fr. Guido, the Parish Priest of Tangla. This was the second church of the community which was then served as the Parish Church until the present Church which was built by Fr. Augustine Panamkat. The first Church became the temporary residence of Fr. Mathew Kunnath. The present residence land belonging to Mr. John Kujur was bought by him and the residence was made within two years which stands still.
