Purpose: Office of Archives serves as the repository for the historical and administrative records of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond. The office is responsible for preserving the cultural heritage of the institutions and organizations of the Diocese. The archivist gathers, arranges, describes and safeguards all official records and artifacts which have permanent, historical value. These materials will be made available for research purposes. In collaboration with the archives, the Museum of Virginia Catholic History, located in the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, serves as an educational resource providing a venue to exhibit and interpret artifacts of historical, spiritual and cultural significance to Virginia's Catholic community.
