Our Mission

The purpose of the Archives of the Diocese of St. Petersburg is to collect, preserve, and make available for research the official records of the Diocese and those ancillary records which reflect the work of the Catholic Church within the Diocese. The Archives is erected in accordance with Canon 482, which charges the Chancellor with the responsibility for the Archives.
