Diocese of Boise, Idaho

Established August 26, 1893

The state of Idaho initially fell under the jurisdiction of the see of Oregon City, whose archbishops, Francois Blanchet and Charles Seghers, promoted the missions among the Indians and whites of the territory. When it was erected as a diocese centered in Boise, Alphonsus Joseph Glorieux became the first bishop.
