To commemorate the celebration of International Archives Week 2019 Archives International Week 2019 we inform that we have digitized new materials.
In the course of a consultation we have spotted some tapes in 8mm format. They showed a poor state of conservation and we decided to digitize this part of our collection.

They seem to be images from Guinea with the presence of Fr. Tomàs Lluís Pujadas (Sabadell, May 26, 1904 – Vic November 12, 1994), cmf. Fr.

It is a biography of great historical value due to the closeness to the events occurred; in addition, it offers at the end, a series of testimonies from people who had known and had dealt directly with the Holy Missionary. (more…)

Fr. Josep Rovira, cmf, member of the CESC, explains how young Anthony Claret lived situations that led him to rethink the meaning of his life and give a radical vocational response.
