Welcome to the Diocese of Shrewsbury which continues the mission of the Catholic Church across Cheshire and Shropshire and parts of Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Derbyshire.


More than a hundred parishes and schools together with more than thirty Religious communities and ecclesial movements continue this mission today.
