Anglican Denomination

The presence of the Anglican Church can be traced from the early beginnings of Bahamian history. It is said that the Eleutherian Adventurers included two Anglican priests who had left the Church. In 1670 The Bahamas was granted to the Lord Proprietors, by the English Crown. Among the requirements of this Grant was the establishment of Churches in the islands. Christ Church dates back from 1670.

Roman Catholic

The Roman Catholic Church mission period formally began in 1837 when the Holy See placed the "Lucayan or Bahama Islands" under the authority of the newly established Vicariate Apostolic of Jamaica. In the 19th century, priests who made brief visits, undertook challenging, even life threatening journeys by sea to minister to those early Catholics who endured long periods without the sacraments.
