Volunteers are the backbone of making the large Diocesan collection accessible to researchers and staff. Our volunteers have catalogued over 5,000 photographs, 400 books and over 30 linear metres of records. Their work, cataloguing the archives, contributes to our overall knowledge and understanding of Diocesan history.

We welcome volunteers who can assist with making heritage information more accessible by listing records, digitizing finding aids, or interpreting collection items for display.

For further details email the Diocesan Archivist.
