HistoryEdit

The Diocese of Monterrey was erected by Papal Bull "Relata Semper" by Pope Pius VI on December 15, 1777. The diocese's territory was taken from the Dioceses of Mexico, Michoacan and, mainly, Guadalajara. It encompassed the modern states of Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, Tamaulipas and Texas. It was first called the Diocese of Linares, then Linares-Monterrey. Its name was changed to Monterrey on June 9, 1922.[2][3]
