Diocese of Leeds

The Diocese of Leeds, the Catholic Church across Yorkshire’s historic West Riding since 1878.

The territory of the Leeds Diocese now covers parts of five counties; it comprises the Catholic communities in the northern part of what is now West Yorkshire together with some areas of  North and East Yorkshire, e.g. Ripon, Selby and Howden – and some parishes now in Lancashire (Barnoldswick) and Greater Manchester (Uppermill).

Within the Diocese about 26,000 Catholics attend Mass on any particular Sunday and during the last year, some 2,214 children were baptised into the Church.

In addition to more than 100 churches in its parishes, there are also 93 schools, both primary and secondary, a sixth-form college, the country’s only Catholic special school for the deaf and one of only three UK universities with a modern Catholic foundation. The Diocese is presided over by the Bishop of Leeds, whose residence and administrative offices are in Headingley.

St. Mary’s is part of the Diocese of Leeds, Bishop Marcus Stock is our Bishop. We attend masses and
liturgies at the cathedral for special occasions, such as Mini Vinnies mass.
