The Archives of the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill has as its mission the documentation of the history and charism of the congregation in relation to:

  • Founders and Patrons
  • Membership

  • Governance/Administration
  • Temporalities
  • Apostolic Ministries
  • Education
  • Religious Education
  • Evangelization
  • Health Care
  • Social Service

By appropriate preservation of the records of the Congregation, the Archives also contributes to:

    • the history of the Church in the United States, especially in those dioceses in which the Sisters of Charity serve or have served
    • the history of women religious in the United States
    • the history of the Church in other countries where the Sisters of Charity serve or have served (Korea, China, Israel, et al.)
    • local history in the State of Pennsylvania, where the mother house of the Congregation is located, and in other places where Sisters of Charity reside and serve
