The Diocesan Heritage Center, established and dedicated by the Bishop Emeritus Lawrence E. Brandt, May 13, 2014, is a repository for collecting, preserving and exhibiting the cultural, artistic, religious, intellectual and archival patrimony of the Diocese of Greensburg. This multi-dimensional enterprise is intended to be above all a ministry of evangelization, which inspires the hearts and minds of the faithful and wider community to enhance our relationship with Jesus Christ, to gain further knowledge about the Catholic faith and to acquire an awareness of the presence of the church in our lives.
Through preserving, interpreting and presenting the rich religious heritage of our forbearers in faith the center intends to inspire appreciation of our religious legacy in the present and seeks likewise to bring those who frequent the center to a greater realization of the heroic sacrifices of past generations. The center as a repository for oral and written records provides accurate documentation of the historical church. The center also serves as a resource which promotes the celebration of historic milestones in the life of the diocese and its parishes.
The Diocesan Heritage Center and its commission, as an advisory board, is committed to achieving these goals under the leadership of the diocesan bishop by engaging the clergy and laity in active and diverse ways of participation and support. This Diocesan Heritage Center is therefore intended to be not only a monument to the past but a signpost pointing the way toward a sustainably fulfilling future for us all.
