The Diocesan Archives are currently housed
in Chapter House, Flinders Lane, Melbourne.

Last year Archbishop Freier decided to relocate the Diocesan Archives from the Chapter House to the former St Luke’s North Fitzroy buildings. Hazel Nsair was made Project Manager for this relocation project with assistance from Leonie Duncan.

A Steering Committee was formed to oversee this project, an architect has been appointed and a building brief is being worked on. The plan is to have the Centre designed for specific archival conditions with a reading room, display area and space for growth.

As there is a considerable amount of work still to be done; sorting, indexing, packing up, moving and unpacking, the current Diocesan Archives will unfortunately need to be closed for a period, beginning on 28 June 2013 with a tentative reopening date early in 2014.

If you are interested or have any other queries, please contact Hazel Nsair, Project Manager on 9653 4258 or
