Record Disposal Schedule for Parishes

This Schedule is a tool that the Diocesan Archives can provide Parishes to help determine parochial records of long term value.  Endorsed by Bishop Paul, the Parish Records Disposal Schedule outlines some of the main records that Parishes deal with, with accompanying retention decisions. These records provide evidence of Parish functions and activities, and accountability to the Diocese, in addition to their research value in the future.  This Schedule is an effort to ensure consistency across all Parishes within the Diocese and forms part of a larger Diocesan Records Disposal Schedule which is currently being drafted.

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.
