Biographical history

The Diocese of Cariboo was created from the second division of the Diocese of New Westminster by decision of the Synod of New Westminster in 1913. The division was confirmed and ratified at the first session of the Provincial Synod in 1914. The Diocese comprises the south central area of British Columbia, including the Fraser River region north of Yale and the Thompson River region. Although created only in 1914, missionary activity in Cariboo extended back to the 1860's under the administration of the Diocese of British Columbia until 1879 and New Westminster from 1879, including work in Barkerville and among the Thompson Indians in the Lytton area. The Synod of the Diocese of Cariboo held its first session in 1914 and was incorporated by an act of the provincial legislature in 1915. As with the basis of division acted upon in the creation of the Diocese of Kootenay, a Bishop of the new Diocese could not be elected until sufficient funds were in place in a Bishopric Endowment Fund. Thus, until 1924 when the first electoral Synod was held, the Bishop of New Westminster maintained jurisdiction over Cariboo. The See city of the Diocese is Kamloops and St. Paul's is the Cathedral.
