The Archives serves the broader mission of the diocese by using its resources to support the ministry and community life of diocesan congregations, ministries and institutions. It does this by providing reference and research services, by offering information regarding the collection and preservation of records and by supplying records management assistance.

You are invited to make use of these services and to learn more about the history of the Diocese and its family of parishes, missions, institutions and special ministries.
