Diocese of Little Rock Archives

The purpose of our archives is to collect, preserve and make available for research historical records that document the presence and mission of the Catholic Church in Arkansas. The diocesan policy is to keep our records closed. We do research on a time available basis upon request. To request a record, E-mail the Diocesan Archivist.
