HISTORY OF DIOCESE

The Province of Ilorin can be linked to the old western region of Nigeria which
was mainly evangelized by the society of African Missions (SMA). We have the accounts of the five earliest contacts with the catholic faith through Western Nigeria from separate locations as follows: Offa 1912, Oro 1918, Eruku 1918, Aare-Opin 1918 and Ayedun, former Aye-Ekan 1912. By 1943, the entire province of Ilorin, which used to be part of the vicariate of the Bight of Benni (Lagos) was removed and formed part of the vicariate of Ondo-Ilorin. And by 1950 the whole area became the diocese of Ondo. With the independence of Nigeria in 1960, it was desirable that church jurisdictions should not cross the Region boundaries; this necessitated the creation of separate prefecture Apostolic in January 20, 1960 called Independent Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of Ilorin. By December 6,1961 Rev. Fr. William Mahony was appointed Prefect Apostolic of Ilorin. Later it was raised to the status of a diocese with Rt. Rev. (Dr) William Mahony (SMA) as its first Bishop.
The great task of building the diocese of Ilorin began in earnest in 1969 at the inception of the diocese pastoral exercises commenced. Subsequently parishes were created and Ilorin became the centre of all pastoral and administrative apostolate. Further developments were witnessed in the areas of education and health facilities.
