Welcome to the Manchester Archives

The Manchester Archives, comprising diocesan files and investigative materials, were made public by the NH AG as part of an agreement with the Manchester diocese, whereby the diocese avoided indictment for multiple counts of child endangerment. The files were made available to the public on a CD containing 17 very large and unwieldy PDF files.

In order to make these files more accessible, the staff of has subdivided the original files into smaller PDFs for easier download. All the material from the original CD is now available on this Web site, organized by priest and other topics (see list below with clickable links to the PDF files). Click Here if you are interested in a cross-referenced index of NH AG and file names, and click here for a sample of the full document list that we are preparing for this archive. Click here to view the diocese's own response to the NH AG's report.

Please contact us at to help us with the following issues related to the archives:

  • If you find a document in the archives that you believe is of special interest, please notify us, and we will add it to a "Recommended Reading" list.
  • If you notice any errors that we have made -- broken links, incorrect file names, or other problems -- please bring them to our attention and we will fix them promptly.
  • Please let us know about any other concerns you might have.

If you are using the archives and would like to prepare a full document list for a particular file, please contact us at We would appreciate this help.

These archives are a testament to the victims and advocates who came forward about abusive priests in the Manchester diocese, and to the members of the NH AG's Task Force, whose hard work and dedication has brought the truth to light. The NH AG and his team have not assisted us in any way with this project, but the staff at hopes that the posted files will contribute to the AG's stated goals.
