Welcome to the Victory Noll Archive site
This is the online Archives of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters, or commonly known as the Victory Noll Sisters. In their past they published a mission journal, THE MISSIONARY CATECHIST. This journal is available in the Victory Noll Archives, and also online. We have also posted postcard views of the Motherhouse in Huntington, Indiana, and of the Queen of Missions located in Redlands, California, and other scenes from our early history. The Archives holds material from the beginning of the Society of Missionary Catechists, 1922 to the present day. We are looking to adding material of some of the early people in our history including Fr. John J. Sigstein, Archbishop John Francis Noll, and some of our earliest sisters. The Victory Noll Sisters have always had a special relationship with Archbishop Noll. He was an early benefactor of the Victory Noll Sisters and is buried in our cemetery. The Victory Noll Archives' strengths are in its holdings of their community, their relationship with Archbishop John F. Noll, early catechical materials, Catholicism in rural areas of the Southwest (especially New Mexico), and work among Hispanics in the early 20th century.
The primary mission of the Archives is to serve the needs of the Victory Noll Community, but researchers are welcome. If you are conducting research and need assistance from the Victory Noll Archives, feel free to contact the Archives. Please be very specific with your request and provide as much information as possible about your research. Research will be provided according to available records and in as timely manner as possible.
