Collections

Almost all of the architectural holdings came from the Archdiocese Building Committee Office which is responsible for approving all construction projects. The bulk of the blueprints are housed in boxes and are listed under "Building Committee."

Some drawings are found in the Committee's office files with correspondence, specifications, and other documents.
