The books, pamphlets and exhibit catalogues were accepted as donations from Mrs. Mol for the intrinsic value of the volumes in relation to religious art or to Ukrainian art, or in relation to Mol’s art, and his thought process towards the making of art. Most of the publications have been integrated into the Chancery in-house library. The 328 still images include many of Mol’s sculpture subjects, living photos of individuals like Pope John Paul II, Pope Paul VI, Metropolitan Michael Bzdel, Cardinal Yosef Slipyj; many photos are of Mol’s completed bronze sculptures; a large number are of his early church decoration in Beausejour, Brandon and Winnipeg; some are of his stained glass work in Winnipeg. Three sketches are of church decoration; one is an unfinished ink on glassine (?) Christ figure; two are white ink on matte board, of apostles; the fourth is pastel on paper, a portrait of Taras Shevchenko. The copies of sketches are of Metropolitan Ilarion and A.Y. Jackson. The postcards are religious by theme, predominantly Catholic, many of art in European heritage repositories. The holy cards include many Christian symbols. The poster is of the Caritas Dinner in Mol’s honour, 2001. The unfinished mosaic of Christ’s face is a conservation risk.
