Diocese of Leeds
We learn about our school within the wider catholic community and the World. As part of this, we make sure that we take part in events and learn about our schools diocese, the Diocese of Leeds.
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). A map of Deaneries within our Diocese can be found at the bottom of this page.
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.
Our Bishop is Bishop Marcus Stock. He is responsible for schools and parishes within the Diocese of Leeds.
We pray for him and that God will guide him in his role.
