The Roman Catholic Apostolic Vicariate of Thessaloniki (Latin: Vicariatus Apostolicus Thessalonicensis) is an Apostolic Vicariate of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in Greece. The Vicariate was established in 1926, comprising the provinces of Thessaloniki, Kavala, Xanthi, Volos, Larisa and Giannitsa.
