Archives

The Archives of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut is the official repository of records created by and about the diocese, its related bodies, and individual Episcopalians. Our foremost requirement by canon is to keep a complete record of all the Episcopal Acts of the bishops. Our mission is to identify, collect, preserve, classify, and make available the records of the ongoing life and work of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut. We also offer reference service to Diocesan staff, clergy, laity and the general public. The Archives was created by resolution at the diocesan convention in 1866, and its resources exist as a part of the broader mission to support community life and parish work in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut.

Using the Archives

The Archives and Resource Library are open by appointment. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact ECCT’s Archivist & Records Manager.

The archivist is also available to visit parishes and assist with setting up archival programs or records management schedules.
