Local Catholic History

St. Martin's College

"The documentation contained in archives constitutes a heritage which is preserved in order to be transmitted and utilized. Its consultation allows an historical reconstruction of a specific Particular Church and the society in which it operates. In this sense the papers of memory are a living cultural good because they are offered for the training of the Church and civil community and handed down for generations to come."
