Historique

In 1976, the Synod of Newfoundland divided the single Diocese of Newfoundland into three separate dioceses (Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, Central Newfoundland and Western Newfoundland), each with its own synod. Each diocesan synod maintains an archives where synod, diocesan, and parish records are kept. In most cases, all sacramental records pertaining to this diocese have been transferred to this Archives. However, some records still remain with the Archives for the Eastern Diocese. The Archives for the Western Diocese was established during the May 1989 Synod of the Western Diocese.
