The museum embraces art that helps reference Christian history and the congregations of the Reformation. The museum holds in high esteem the Jewish faith and preserves a significant collection of Jewish art and history. The museum also holds as a purpose the inventory, display and restoration of artistic and liturgical items to sacred use in the Diocese and as far away as the domestic and foreign missions.”
