Archbishop John C. Favalora Archive and Museum

A university is… “an incomparable centre of creativity and dissemination of knowledge for the good of humanity”. (Ex Corde Ecclesiae, Pope John Paul II, 1990).   A major task of a university therefore is to organize knowledge so that it is easily accessible to as many people as possible. Critical to the mission is the preservation of history and the exploration of the past.

Establishment of the Archbishop John C. Favalora Archive and Museum on the St. Thomas University campus pr6ovides the ability to share vast historical resources with students, scholars and the wider community and further enhances the relationship between the Archdiocese of Miami and St. Thomas University. The history of the Archdiocese of Miami is replete with important and fascinating materials that demonstrate the importance of the Church in South Florida for the last 50 years. These archives provide an enormous body of knowledge as well as a pleasant visual experience.
