Because Of Apache Indians Bishop Needed Jesuits

They spent six months on the road, camping out in freezing weather, riding through the desert heat, 
enduring the theft of their horses and livestock, narrowly avoiding an Apache Indian attack. All for nothing. Bishop J.B. Lamey was the first archbishop of Santa Fe. A native Frenchman, Lamey was just 25 when he was sent to America, 
where he shuttled around Ohio before being sent to the Southwest. One of the first things he apparently noted was that his missions were lacking in Jesuit priests.
