This journal, which appears twice a year, examines issues of tradition and innovation in new church design and includes critiques of new churches and Catholic buildings as well as news, theory, and book reviews.

According to the editor, Duncan Stroik, "Sacred Architecture" is partially a response to the numerous requests he has received from Catholic pastors and laity for information and advice on church design and evaluation of available church architects. In an introductory editorial he writes that such requests indicate a need for "an architectural publication which will draw on the riches of the Catholic patrimony and articulate the principles for a sacramental architecture."

He notes that while most major Catholic journals include criticism of contemporary film, drama, music and art, suprisingly little attention is paid in their pages to contemporary church architecture. By sponsoring" substantive debate about sacred architecture" in a journal "committed to the promotion of the cultural heritage of the Church," he hopes to address "a sudden awareness that what we have been praying in for the past few decades has not measured up."
