In order to support the vision of the Diocese of Orlando: “Teaching and Living the Light of Christ Jesus: Toward Goodness, Righteousness and Truth,” the Diocese of Orlando Archives primarily serves the information and administrative needs of the bishop and the diocese. It is a place of memory of the Diocesan community and seeks to preserve and promote an understanding of the history and traditions of the diocese.
The staff provides and maintains secure and organized facilities for the retention and preservation of these records in accordance with Canon 486, and coordinates and maintains a records management program throughout the Chancery and diocesan departments. The staff provides guidance on archival issues to diocesan departments, parishes, institutions, and religious orders. The staff also promotes knowledge and understanding of the history of the Diocese, its mission, parishes, services, programs, institutions, and religious by providing access to researchers, and through outreach activities.
