About My Library
The Claretian Missionaries Archives USA collection focuses on material related to St Anthony Claret [1810-1870] and the Claretian Missionaires who made their first foundation at San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, TX in 1902. Since 1902, the Claretians have served in Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Utah, and Washington. They have also established Claretian-sponsored missions in England, Guatemala, Jamaica, Panama, the Philippines.

The Claretians were responsible for introducting the St Jude devotion into the United States with the opening of the National Shrine of St Jude in South Chicago, IL in February 1929. From the devotion, a rich publishing enterprise developed. The archives has the files of Claretian Publications which published the Voice of St Jude, now known as US Catholic as well as a host of other Catholic-oriented materials.
