Welcome to Motherwell Diocese

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, maybe it has been a while since last you visited the Diocese, or you may just be surfing and have found us by accident - 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.

All correspondence should be addressed to:



"Working together for Christ - The Diocese of Motherwell seeks, by the power of prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to be Christ's Church, living and caring for one another and  spreading the good news of the Lord's healing and redeeming power."
