Phoenix Diocese 40 Year History Book


The Archives of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix serves as the final repository for the Diocese’s historical records. The mission of the archives is to collect, maintain, and preserve records of enduring value which pertain to the Roman Catholic Church in Central and Northwest Arizona. We serve diocesan officials, its offices and agencies, the Catholic community, historians, and researchers.

The Archives Office is erected in accordance with Canon 482, which charges the Chancellor with the responsibility for the archives.


The Archives Office is open by appointment only with the archivist. An appointment is necessary to ensure that someone is available to assist you.

The Archivist or staff reserves the right not to duplicate material that may be damaged by photocopying. Duplication of material does not constitute permission to publish. United States copyright laws apply to all duplicated material.

We do not buy, sell, or value artifacts.
