DUBUIS- The Right Rev. Claude Marie Dubuis, formerly Bishop of the diocese of Galveston, Texas, died in Varnaison, France, May 22. He was born in France in 1847. After his ordination as a priest he came to Texas, and was stationed at Castroville in 1847. There he lived in a wretched hut until, with assistance of a brother missionary, he built with his own hands a residence and a schoolhouse. He was transferred to San Antonio in 1850, where he had charge of the Church of San Ferdinand. He there established a convent and a school of the Ursulines. He was appointed Bishop of Galveston in 18/62, and was so successful in reorganizing his diocese that in 1874 it contained fifty-five churches, eighty-three priests and about 180,000 Catholics. He resigned his see in 1880.
