St Clare of Assisi, Middlesbrough facts for kids
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.
