NZ Martyr

A Columban Martyr uses a letter found in Bishop Lyons’ correspondence to tell the story of Fr Francis Vernon Douglas, a Wellington priest, who was tortured and murdered during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines during World War 2.

Catholic Archives in the Classroom

Over time we will develop educational resources suitable for primary, secondary and tertiary students.

Classes are invited to visit the Diocesan Archives for a behind the scenes tour where we can discuss topics such as the importance of archives in research, how archives are cared for to ensure long term preservation and accessibility, career opportunities in archives and records management, and what can be researched at the Diocesan Archives.  The Archivist can visit schools to talk to classes about the Diocesan holdings or other related topics.

Teachers are encouraged to contact the Diocesan Archivist to discuss their requirements.
