Diocese of Middlesbrough within the Province of Liverpool
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough is a Latin Rite Roman Catholic diocese based in Middlesbrough, England and is part of the province of Liverpool. It was founded on 20 December 1878, with the splitting of the Diocese of Beverley which had covered all of Yorkshire. The modern day Middlesbrough diocese covers an area of 4,000 km² in North Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, together with the City of York. The Bishop's See is in Coulby Newham in the town of Middlesbrough at St Mary's Cathedral.
The diocese was created on 20 December 1878 when the then Diocese of Beverley, which covered the whole of Yorkshire, was divided into the Diocese of Middlesbrough, covering the North and East Ridings of Yorkshire and those parishes in the City of York to the north of the River Ouse, and the Diocese of Leeds, covering the West Riding of Yorkshire and those parishes in the City of York to the south of the River Ouse. In 1982 the two York parishes south of the River Ouse were ceded to the Diocese of Middlesbrough to unite the City of York under one bishop. The parish of Howden was transferred from Middlesbrough to the Leeds diocese in 2004.
The diocese was for a time sede vacante after the resignation of the Right Reverend John Patrick Crowley, the 6th Bishop of Middlesbrough, on 3 May 2007 on the grounds of ill health. In November 2007, Monsignor Terence Patrick Drainey was announced as Bishop Crowley's successor. Drainey was ordained as the 7th Bishop of Middlesbrough on 25 January 2008.
