  • To be the repository of all data and artifacts of historical  significance to the parish (i.e., memorabilia, reminiscences, oral histories, documents, artifacts). 
  • To continue to gather and preserve these items. 
  • To record and document parish events of historical significance. 
  • To give periodic presentations, exhibits or publications pertaining to events of historical significance to the parish or of spiritual or educational interest to the parish.
  • To work toward establishing a permanent home for our archive collection.

The History Committee was formed in 2006 prior to the Parish Jubilee Year with the purpose of researching and writing a book chronicling the parish’s 100-year history.  The History Committee continues to solicit and welcomes donations of personal artifacts, especially old family photographs.  We already possess a sizable collection of photographs and are looking to add to this collection for a future exhibit and a possible keepsake book.  We look forward to your contributions.  Nothing is too trivial!
