Chronology of Catholic Dioceses:Notes on The Diocese of Victoria

From the CE, we learn that since the line of demarcation between British and American territory was still undecided in 1843, missonaries were sent into the terrirtory from both Canada and the United States. Oregon became a joint mission depending on both the Bishops of Quebec and Baltimore. On the initiative of these bishops, the mission was erected into an Apostolic Vicariate in 1843. In 1846, it was transformed into a province comprising the Archdiocese of Oregon City and the Dioceses of Walla Walla and Victoria on Vancouver`s Island.
