Parish Records Disposal Schedule

This Schedule is a tool that the Diocesan Archives can provide Parishes to help determine parochial records of long term value. 

Endorsed by Archbishop Paul, the Parish Records Disposal Schedule outlines some of the main records that Parishes deal with, with accompanying retention decisions. These records provide evidence of Parish functions and activities, and accountability to the Diocese, in addition to their research value in the future.  This Schedule is an effort to ensure consistency across all Parishes within the Diocese and forms part of a larger Diocesan Records Disposal Schedule which is currently being drafted.
