Catholics who resided in the trans-Appalachian West fostered good relations and interaction with the neighboring Protestants and those of other non-Catholic religions. Although there may have been some instances in which the Catholics opposed their neighbors, they nonetheless considered their non-Catholic neighbors in their endeavors of establishing a religious presence. The Catholic clergy, along with their Protestant counterparts, had high hopes for the area since they had various visions involving overcoming manpower, money, distance, and other such obstructions as well as the initiation of seminaries and schools, the establishment of church buildings, the reinforcement of ecclesiastical authority, as well as the attainment of the acceptance of the Protestant majority. The West proved to have presented both challenges and opportunities that shifted the focus of the clergy outward.
