What is a Church Directory?[edit | edit source]

A Catholic Church directory lists church archdiocese officials, dioceses, and parishes. Church directories:

  • List the parishes in each diocese, so you can determine if your ancestor’s village had an established parish. It may also indicate if the village had a chapel but was not yet a parish.
  • Sometimes provide the earliest dates for which the church records of each parish exist.
  • May include historical information about each parish.
  • Usually group parishes by diocese, so you can easily determine all neighboring parishes.
  • Sometimes provide addresses of parishes, the diocese headquarters, and the diocese archives where additional records may be kept.

Online Directories[edit | edit source]

The following online directories provide information on the Catholic Church in Mexico:
