The Archives of the Congregation

Since 1680, the Sisters of Charity of Nevers have kept the heritage of Jean-Baptiste Delaveyne alive.  They have also kept alive the ways in which the different generations of Sisters have been faithful to it.

The archives are a living memory because they keep us in touch with the life of the Congregation since its foundation.  They give us an insight into how the experience was lived and the difficulties encountered during the evolution of different societies and the Church over three centuries.

The Sister archivist, with the help of a lay-archivist, is currently engaged in a huge work of modernising the archives.  A renovation of the premises is under way to ensure the preservation of documents and objects.
