Day 1 Workshops

“History is a Prologue to the Future”

Brian Wilbert


This presentation will explore the importance of maintaining diocesan and parish archives (including record retention and disposal) and writing diocesan and parish histories (fact vs. fiction!).  With our ever evolving communication in both paper and electronic forms it is essential that we know what to save and how to save it.

Resources will be offered. Demonstrations for archiving documents and photographs will be given.  Tips will be revealed for gathering information and plotting out if not writing or updating diocesan/parish histories. Story telling will be an essential part of this presentation!  How does our story intersect with God’s story past, present and future?
