HISTORY OF DIOCESE

The Archdiocese of Onitsha was founded by the missionaries of the Holy
Ghost Congregation mostly from Ireland, France and Alsace Lorain. The missionaries landed at the present site of the Holy Trinity Cathedral on 5th December, 1885.
Onitsha was erected a Prefecture in July, 1889. It became the Vicariate of Southern Nigeria April, 1920; and in 1950, it was raised to the status of an Archdiocese with the establishment of the hierarchy in Nigeria. The same year Lagos and Kaduna were also made Archdioceses.
