Description:
St Clare's, Middlesbrough is a parish in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough. The church is close to the Junction of the main A19 and the A174.

History

The Church of St Clare Of Assisi opened in 1965, originally as part of the parish of St Francis of Assisi. It cost £35,000 and was officially opened by Bishop Wheeler on 11 February 1965.

The parish of St Francis of Assisi was divided in 1967 and St Clare's became a separate parish. This was caused by the greatly increased quantity of housing built in the locality and the consequent increased population. The church is of a fairly large size and of a typical design for churches built in the 1960s. The church was re-ordered after the Second Vatican Council, resulting in the tabernacle being moved to a separate Blessed Sacrament chapel in the church. The original altar was replaced after reordering but still allows Mass to be celebrated versus populum or versus apsidem and the church is the only one in the diocese to host a regular Latin Mass.
