The Catholic Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania solicits and welcomes items for  Gathered Fragments addressing the culture and history of Catholicism in Western Pennsylvania.

Gathered Fragments publishes articles and primary sources relating to the parochial, religious, diocesan, and laical  history of the Catholic Church in Western Pennsylvania. We also solicit book and exhibit reviews, news, and other items relating to Catholic history in Western Pennsylvania.  Genealogical items are accepted, providing they relate to the broader scope of the Society’s mission.  Articles previously published elsewhere will be considered with appropriate permission from the original publication.  Submissions should pertain in some way to the broader theme of Catholicism in Western Pennsylvania. 

The Gathered Fragments Style Guide and the Gathered Fragments Identification Form provides information on the format. Submissions may be sent to an editor.
