This series relates largely to the administration of parishes, missions and other localities in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and the Northwest Territories. The records in this series vary according to each mission and parish, but can include codices historici which are daily journals written by the Oblates about the parishes and missions and its surrounding communities, libri animarum which are records of families, histories of given names and families, dates of births and deaths, marriages accumulated by Oblates, correspondence with the Provincial or the Bursar, correspondence with the local diocese, financial reports and accounts, list of personnel, histories of the parish, newsletters, church bulletins, diaries, press clippings and scrapbooks.
Community material can include brochures, censuses, interviews, records of church construction, press clippings, maps, advertisements, articles, local planning or committee records, presentations, newsletters, genealogy records, project files, video recordings of events, and anniversary celebration material specific to the locale.
