The Diocese of Motherwell was erected as a Suffragan See of the Archdiocese of Glasgow by the Apostolic Constitution Maxime interest of the 25th May 1947.
Since its foundation our diocese has both grown and decreased in size. However in recent years a large number of new housing developments, and thus the arrival of many young families who have taken up residency in the diocese, are giving us new hope of life in the future.
We hope this web site maybe of interest to
you. Whether you know our Diocese well and
are just looking for further information,
or it has been a while since last you visited
the Diocese, or you may just be surfing and
have found us by accident - either way, we
hope you find something of use to yourself.
Lastly, we pray that we may face that future
in the same spirit as our forefathers confident
that, with God's continued help and our efforts,
his work in the Diocese of Motherwell may
be accomplished for many years to come.
