Object ID:
Scope & Content:
Bishop Aegidius Junger of Nesqually, WA wrote DeRyckere on 16 Sept 1883 officially excardinating him from the Nesqually diocese in which he had been a priest since 1864.

The excardination was necessary because Helena had been established as a Vicariate Apostolic under Bishop Brondel who subsequently incardinated DeRyckere in the Helena diocese so he could remain at the parish in Deer Lodge.
