History: Erected for Hawaii in 1941, the Diocese of Honolulu succeeded the Prefecture-Apostolic for the Hawaiian/ Sandwich Islands, 1826-1844, and the Vicariate-Apostolate for the Hawaiian Islands, 1844-1941, both of which were under the leadership of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Since the 1840s, a number of Catholic Native Americans resided in the Honolulu area resulting from employment/ service in the fishing industry and the U.S. Armed Forces. In 1999, it was estimated that 500 baptized Native American Catholics from various tribes resided within the Honolulu Diocese.
