The Daughters of Charity Constitutions and Statutes states: “The Archives establish a link with the past and contribute to maintaining the continuity of the spirit of the Company. Their preservation is to be assured at all levels: local, Provincial, and General.” The Archives of the Province of St. Louise contributes to this mission by preserving records of enduring value, by promoting the life and work of the founders ( St. Vincent de Paul, St. Louise de Marillac, and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton), by promoting the Community’s works, past and present, and by making our collections available for research.
