The Diocese of Sacramento maintains an extensive collection of historical artifacts, documents and books in its archives. These items unfold the story of the Sacramento Diocese and provide a rich history that calls us back to earlier times.


A visit to the archives reminds one of the seemingly simple beginnings of a Church and its faithful in northern California.
