The Roman Catholic Church in Fiji is part of the worldwide Catholic Church, under the spiritual leadership of the Pope in Rome.

Demographics and organization[edit]

There are approximately 80,000 Catholics in Fiji, just under 10% of the total population. The whole of the country forms a single archdiocese, the Archdiocese of Suva. The 1996 census revealed just over 75 percent of Catholics to be indigenous Fijians and 5 percent Indo-Fijians, with minority communities making up the balance. The present leader of the Roman Catholic Church in Fiji is Archbishop Peter Loy Chong.[1]
