Archdiocese Of Dubuque

The Dubuque Archdiocesan Archives and the Center for Dubuque History at Loras College have combined their parish history holdings to create a remarkable collection of materials that help to tell the story of Catholic life in the Archdiocese. The full collection is permanently housed at the Pastoral Center, 1229 Mt. Loretta Ave. in Dubuque, however a summary of the holdings is available on our Parish History page as part of the Archbishop Kucera Center publication series, “Spiritual Life in the Upper Mississippi River Valley.

Questions? Let’s get in touch.
