Welcome to the website of the Diocese of Paisley. The Diocese was established in 1947 to serve the Roman Catholic Community within Inverclyde, Renfrewshire & East Renfrewshire (excluding Thornliebank). Although a small Diocese in geographical terms, the Diocese serves an eighth of the Catholic population in Scotland. Our Bishop is Rt. Rev. John Keenan, the fifth Bishop of Paisley. His Episcopal Ordination took place in St. Mirin's Cathedral on 19th March 2014.
