Archive Enquiries

The Generalate Archive is not open to the public and does not have facilities for personal searchers, although exceptions may be made for academic researchers by prior arrangement.

The Generalate Archive

The Generalate Archive was set up in 1994 by Dr Peter Hughes at the request of Mother Bernard Mary Murray, Superior General. From very small beginnings – a single small box of papers – the Archive has grown exponentially over the ensuing years and is now housed in the Nazareth Heritage Centre.

The Nazareth Heritage Centre

The Nazareth Heritage Centre was opened on the 24th September, 2020, by Bishop Michael Campbell OSA. The Centre holds the history, records, documents, artefacts, portraits, photographs and information of the founding and continuation of the Congregation of the Sisters of Nazareth. Together with the Congregation’s Archive, the Centre is housed in a former school of the Congregation. The collection is displayed in four different sections:

THE DIVINE LIGHT SHINES IN AND THROUGH ALL CREATION

All reality is holy by virtue of its creation in Christ, and the consecration of the world through the incarnation. We are part of the world and, even though we are a unique expression of God’s creative activity, nevertheless share an organic unity with every element of the natural world in which we live.

We pray for you every day…

Every day the Sisters of Nazareth pray for you through the intercession of Mother St Basil, our Foundress, when we pray for the intentions and hopes of God’s people who are in need.
