CMS 054 documents activities at Saint Anthony of Padua, a Roman Catholic parish for Italian immigrants in a small town in upstate New York, from 1898 (four years before the parish was formally founded in 1902) to 1975 (when the founding order of clergy parish relinquished it to the Diocese of Buffalo, the see in which it is located). The collection includes correspondence with the chancery of the Diocese of Buffalo, financial papers, marriage records, and ephemeral publications. It is a source for information on Italian Americans, on Roman Catholic parish life, and on the Society of Saint Charles-Scalabrinians, the order that founded the parish and served in it the first three quarters of the twentieth century.
