Description

His Excellency the Most Reverend Joseph Francis Rummel, S.T.D, was the sixth Bishop of Omaha and ninth Archbishop of New Orleans. Throughout his administration in New Orleans the church made significant advances in growth, in spiritual advancement, and in lay events throughout Southeastern Louisiana, which encompasses the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Due to His Excellency’s promotion of several lay organizations to conduct an assortment of religious events, he came to be known as the “Archbishop of Catholic Action.”

While leading the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Archbishop Rummel supported numerous functions that were attended by thousands of people, including religious assemblies, conventions, and demonstrations. His Excellency also gave much of his time to the nation’s war effort through patriotic radio addresses. Even after the war, he was often asked to lecture at public assemblies and continued to give radio addresses available to the general public. These addresses and sermons make up the bulk of the collection available for viewing within this finding aid and digital collection.


Content and scope:

This collection includes typed and handwritten addresses and sermons created by the Most Reverend Joseph Rummel between 1931 and 1961. After becoming the Archbishop of New Orleans in 1935, he delivered many of these speeches in the New Orleans Metropolitan area and throughout the state of Louisiana. Archbishop Rummel proclaimed these narratives at churches, conventions, commencements, funerals, stadiums, graduations, banquets, inaugurations, dedications, and at the Eighth National Eucharistic Congress. While serving as Archbishop, His Excellency also spoke in Washington, D. C., Galveston, Natchez, San Francisco, Birmingham, Pittsburgh, Little Rock, Detroit, Seattle, St. Paul, Jackson, Montgomery, Houston, Denver and several other places throughout the United States. He conveyed his views on a number of topics including Catholicism, community, education, national and international relations, refugees, war time morale, organized labor and patriotism, minority achievement and prospect, social justice, and numerous other subjects. This collection also includes a few newspaper articles, pamphlets, and letters. The collection is arranged by year and includes an undated folder.
