The first Catholic missionaries in Tura arrived in 1933, and the diocese has since flourished. Pope Paul VI established Tura as a Diocese on April 7, 1973. Bishop George Mamalassery played a vital role during his 28-year term. On April 22, 2007, Bishop Andrew R. Marak succeeded him, with Reverend Father Jose Chirackal becoming the Auxiliary Bishop in 2020.

The Diocese of Tura has excelled in providing quality education, including colleges, secondary schools, and primary schools, contributing to the socio-economic development of Meghalaya. Alumni of Catholic institutions in Garo Hills now hold key positions in society.
