The Archives is the official repository for the records of the Diocese of Charlotte and serves to retain the memory of the established Catholic Church in this area. We are a service organization that exists first and foremost for the support of the diocesan administration.

We provide a professional archive facility that identifies, collects, preserves and makes available all historically and canonically significant records, documents, artifacts, and works of enduring value which pertain to the operation and history of the Diocese of Charlotte, its parishes, agencies, institutions and people. These materials are extended to researchers according to canon law, civil law, conservation considerations and as resources permit.

The Bishop McGuinness Archives Project

ThBishop McGuinness Catholic School logoe Bishop McGuinness Archives Project was created in the spring of 2017 in an effort to seek out and preserve the rich history of the Diocese of Charlotte in North Carolina. This project is created in its entirety by the senior classes of Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School and features new content each spring upon their graduation.
