Why Have You Come Here?

Nicholas P. Cushner

Oxford University Press

In 1634, the colony of St. Mary’s City was founded by Lord Baltimore. Jesuits accompanied the colonists in hopes of evangelizing the Indians. Their efforts were partly successful. Because of religious upheavals in England, the inability to evangelize the Indian, and the sharp population increase of Catholic colonists, the Jesuits in Maryland shifted goals and became ministers to European Catholics. The Maryland Mission eventually extended to Pennsylvania.
