  • 1985

The photographic directory of members consisted of two binders of photographs attached to construction paper, with the names of parishioners written on the paper.

The directory was originally divided into three three-ring binders (28 x 29 cm each): the first for parishioners with last names A to J, the second for last names from K to O, and the third for last names from P to Y. In order to preserve the photographs safely, the photographs and sheets of paper were removed from the binders and placed in files in alphabetical order as follows: File 1: A-E, File 2: F-J, File 3: K-Mc, File 4: Me-R, File 5: S-Y, File 6: To Be Identified. The approximate date that the photographs were taken is 1985, based on information provided by parishioners in 2020.

In 1994, individual reports from committees and groups were consolidated into a document, usually with a cover page, which served as the annual report but which also included the minutes of the previous year's annual meeting along with an agenda for the current year's annual meeting.
