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

this mission today.
I hope this developing website will reflect something of the life of the Diocese with its great diversity of towns, cities and rural communities sharing together the Catholic faith. We welcome you to join us here on the internet.
