The Archives contain materials in a variety of formats: print, manuscript, visual, audio, and multimedia. The Archives mirrors the rich history of the North American Claretians allowing users to explore different aspects of Claretian ministry. Parish, educational, spirituality, media and allied Catholic social action ministries formed the heart of the Claretian congregational presence. To support this enterprise, organized fund-raising activities occurred. Saint Anthony Claret’s missionary charism demanded that missionaries work among the people wherever they resided. The collection reflects this multi-leveled evangelical perspective.
