The first Catholic Mission Station in what is now Northern Nigeria was
established in Lokoja in 1884. The two resident priests were Rev. Frs. Jules Poirier and Florentini, both of the Society of African Mission (SMA) of France. Rev. Fr. Florentini unfortunately died after a few months of his arrival and was replaced by Rev. Fr. Charles Zappa in 1886.The first Mass in the Archdiocese was celebrated in the area presently known as Kakuri Bus Stop in 1908. Rev. Fr.
Cerminati who said the Mass cycled all over the area, travelling as far as Sokoto to do his pastoral work.
In 1911, an ecclesiastical jurisdiction, including the Eastern half of the northern territory, was carved out and named the Prefecture Apostolic of Northern-Eastern
KADUNA ARCHDIOCESE
Province: Kaduna Erection: June 29, 1953Nigeria.
The Prefecture included the provinces of Sokoto, Niger, Zaria, northern Benue, Plateau, Bauchi, Adamawa and Borno. All other areas north of Rivers Niger and Benue were administered by the Vicar Apostolic of Asaba in the South-West of Nigeria. In 1922, Msgr. Oswald Wailer SMA, was transferred from Shendam to Kana, and more Catholic Missions were opened in 1929. In 1934, the Northern Territory was divided into the Prefecture Apostolic of Kaduna and the Prefecture Apostolic of Jos. The former comprised the provinces of Kana, Zaria, Niger, Katsina, Sakata and other cities in the North. Msgr.
Hughes SMA, who was in charge of the Prefecture Apostolic of Kaduna, transferred his headquarters from Kano to Kaduna.
In 1944, Msgr. Hughes was transferred to and appointed Vicar Apostolic of Ondo/Ilorin. Rev. Fr. John McCarthy then became the Msgr. in charge of the Apostolic of Kaduna. In 1953, the prefecture Apostolic of Kaduna was raised to the status of a diocese and Msgr. McCarthy became its first Bishop. In 1959, Kaduna Diocese was raised to the status of an Archdiocese, with Most Rev.
McCarthy as its first Archbishop. In February 1975, Archbishop McCarthy retired and left Nigeria in April of that same year owing to ill health. He was succeeded by Archbishop Peter Yariyok Jatau, who was consecrated Co-Adjutor Archbishop of Kaduna Archdiocese on Sunday, November 5, 1972 at the Ahmadu Stadium, Kaduna.
Archbishop Jatau, (now Emeritus), administered the Archdiocese and the Ecclesiastical Province of Kaduna from that year to 16, November, 2007, when he retired.
