Celebrating 10 Years of the Catholic Archivist Group

"Keep Calm and Archive On."
That was the theme of last week's Catholic Archivist Group conference in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The conference, which celebrated CAG's tenth anniversary, was held at the beautiful Mount Carmel Spiritual Centre overlooking the Falls.

We were extra excited because it was the first time that our entire ARCAT staff was able to participate.  The forty or so attendees included (arch)diocesan archivists and religious order archivists from across the country. It was wonderful catching up and exchanging ideas and initiatives with our colleagues.

ARCAT gave a presentation on our new website and this blog.

A special shout out to our own Gillian Hearns, who is the outgoing CAG Treasurer after serving a three year term.
