Christmas Greetings

Have you ever wondered what types of greeting cards were exchanged at Christmas in the past? Our staff certainly did...

Below you will find a selection of Christmas cards sent in 1949 to James C. Cardinal McGuigan, Archbishop of Toronto.

The staff at the Archives of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto (ARCAT) wish you all peace and abundant blessings this Christmas.
