Diocese of Campeche (erected 24 March 1895) is a suffragan diocese
of the Archdiocese of Yucatan. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of
Yucatan is located in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico; Campeche and Tabasco
are its suffragans. Its area is that of the state of the same name,
17,204 sq. miles. There is a legend that long before the arrival of
the Spanish in Mexico the Christian religion had been preached in
Yucatan by Quetzacoatl. Yucatan was the first region of the Mexican
territory to encounter Christianity in the sixteenth century; it
was there that the first Roman Catholic Mass was celebrated. It is
said that in 1517 Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba, the discoverer
and explorer of the region, founded the first parish.
