Introduction

Catholic Church in the British Overseas Territories of the Southern Atlantic Ocean

The Catholic Church in the British Overseas Territories of the southern Atlantic Ocean is represented by two ecclesiastical jurisdictions, both immediately responsible to the Holy See. Together the Apostolic Prefecture of the Falkland Islands and the Mission sui iuris of St. Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha care for the souls of all who live, work and visit these islands. The history of the Church, in these Islands, can be traced back as far as the eighteenth century. Since 2002 the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales has taken on the responsibility to provide for its pastoral needs of the people of the South Atlantic.
