=== What is a Church Directory? ===
A Catholic Church directory lists church archdiocese officials, dioceses, and parishes. Church directories:
*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.
 
=== Locating Church Directories ===
The Catholic Church directory covering all the archdioceses of Mexico is published about every four years. The Family History Library has the newest edition and several older editions. Church directories are often published by each archdiocese and also by individual dioceses. With the older directories, some information such as a priest’s name or address may be out of date; however, the parish histories are still valid.
*''Directorio Eclesiástico de la Arquidiócesis Primada de México ''(Ecclesiastial Directory of the First Archdiocese of Mexico). Mexico City: Arquidiócesis de México, 1994. (FHL 972 K24i 1994). {{FHL|710628|title-id|disp=FHL Collection}}
 
=== Directories Online ===
 
One online directory for the Catholic Church in Mexico is [http://www.thecatholicdirectory.com/directory.cfm?fuseaction=show_country&country=MX The Catholic Directory.com]. Although the names of church officials are not given, this directory is a good source for the parish address and contact information.
