The Archdiocese of Messina (Latin: Archidioecesis Messanensis-Liparensis-Sanctae Luciae) was originally founded as the Diocese of Messina but was raised to the level of an archdiocese on September 30, 1986 with the merging with the former Diocese of Lipari (5th century)[1] and the Prelature of Santa Lucia del Mela (1206), and as suffragans the Diocese of Patti and Diocese of Nicosia.

The current Archbishop of Messina is Calogero La Piana, S.D.B., and the auxiliary bishop is Francesco Montenegro. The Archbishops Emeriti are Ignazio Cannavò and Giovanni Marra.
