Repository description (extant): When the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth became a Pontifical Institute in 1910, their new Constitutions established the office of Secretary General. Sister Marie Menard was the first to hold this office. Among her record-keeping responsibilities was the preservation of local church and community history. This responsibility continued under her successors until, in 1969, the first Archival Center was established and Sister Mary Ramona Mattingly was appointed as archivist.


The Archival Center is the official repository for all documents, records and photographs which pertain to the internal development of the SCN Congregation, the personal histories of individual members, and the history of the apostolic ministries of the Congregation, including noteworthy facts about the persons served. Some records related to the Church and to national, state and local history, though not directly related to official Community history are retained for their general historic and informational value. The Archival Center is responsible for the preservation of these materials and for making them available to researchers.

Heritage Hall, the Congregationís interpretive museum established in 1988, supplements the holdings in the Archival Center with its display of artifacts, memorabilia and audiovisual materials documenting the heritage of the Congregation
