List of Catholic dioceses (alphabetical)

This is a growing list of territorial Catholic dioceses and ordinariates in communion with the Holy See. There are approximately 3,000 actual (i.e., non-titular) dioceses in the Catholic Church (including the eparchies of the Eastern Catholic Churches).

  • Those dioceses which are (metropolitan or nominal) archdioceses (including archeparchies) are marked in bold type and are also listed at List of Catholic archdioceses.
  • Those dioceses which belong to Eastern Catholic Churches (often called "eparchies") are italicized and their particular Churches and proper episcopal titulature are specified after the see name.
  • Missionary and other special types of circumscriptions (e.g., apostolic prefectures) are also specified before the country name.

NotesEdit

a. ^ The political status of Kosovo is disputed. Having unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008, Kosovo is formally recognised as an independent state by 97 UN member states (with another 15 states recognising it at some point but then withdrawing their recognition), while Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory.
