[responsivevoice voice="UK English Female" buttontext="Listen to this"]This ecclesiastical territory was entrusted to the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart in 1923, and was formerly known as the Gariep Prefecture. The Rt Rev Mgr FW Demont, SCJ, was the first Prefect Apostolic. In 1936 the Prefecture was raised to the status of Vicariate and became known as the Aliwal Vicariate. It was erected as diocese in 1951. In 1953 the Western portion of the Diocese was detached and became the Prefecture of De Aar. The Diocese of Aliwal now comprises (parts of) the municipalities of Inkwanca, Gariep, Kopanong-Xhariep, Maletswai, Senqu and Ukhahlamba.[/responsivevoice]
