Correspondence of the North American Committee

The series consists of correspondence related to the organization of meetings of the North American Committee and the organizational structure for the North American Committee. Also includes letters of invitation to Bishops in the regions of North America to join the Committee and their replies, as well as letters on financial matters including requests for donations from the Faith and Sharing communities.

The correspondence of the North American Committee starts in 1979 and not in 1972. The North American Committee was formed in 1972 but it was not until 1978 when the Executive Committee was formed that there was visible leadership in the Faith & Sharing Federation. In the series entitled ‘Correspondence of the Regional Delegates’ there are documents which list the members of the North American Committee dating from 1973. However in a letter from December 1978 in the series ‘Documents related to the North American Annual Meetings', there is a list of the members of the North American Committee and a plan to form the Executive Committee in order to meet the expressed need for visible leadership. This suggests that up until that date the North American Committee did not have a visible leadership. This also explains why there was a limited amount of correspondence kept by the Secretary of the North American Committee up until that date.

The correspondence from 1999 to 2001 which appears in the original list produced by Séguin is not available in the archive and may have been kept by the Faith & Sharing Federation.
