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

For a structural overview, see List of Catholic dioceses (structured view)
  • 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.
  • For the over 2000 titular dioceses, which no longer constitute actual jurisdictions, see List of Catholic titular sees.
