The beginning of Catholicism in Jammu and Kashmir dates back to 1887, though the history of the Christian presence in Kashmir goes back to the period of the great mughal Emperor Akbar the Great. The Apostolic Prefecture of Kafirstan and Kashmir was erected from the Diocese of Lahore in 1887, which earlier was created out of the Diocese of Agra. The new Prefecture, comprised of Rawalpindi, Kashmir and Ladakh was entrusted to the Mill Hill Missionary Society, London on July 06, 1887.
