Also see . . .  François de Laval - Wikipedia. Laval’s nomination as a bishop for New France was the result of increasing tensions regarding the ecclesiastical state of the colony. New France had been left without a bishop for the first 50 years of its settlement... By this time it had already become clear that New France was in need of a more immediate ecclesiastical presence.
