Administrative History:

The Fellowship of the West, a missionary society that was affiliated with the Diocese of Montreal to assist the western clergy.  Founded in 1928 in Montreal by Geoffrey Guiton, Elton Scott and Reuben Kenneth Naylor, they believed that not all missionary efforts had to be funnelled through the central MSCC office in Toronto.  Two teams of enlisted clergy in 1929 were sent from Montreal to provide personnel to the Dioceses of Athabasca, Kootenay and Cariboo.  The fellowship was disbanded in the spring of 1978.
