The Roman Catholic Diocese of Gumaca (Lat: Dioecesis Gumacanus) is a Roman Catholic diocese in the Philippines centered in the Municipality of Gumaca in Quezon province. The Roman Rite Latin Church diocese covers the communities of Gumaca; Pitogo, due south of Gumaca; and all the parishes of eastern Quezon province situated east of Gumaca and Pitogo. The Gumaca diocese was erected in 1984, carved out from the Diocese of Lucena. Both dioceses are suffragan of the Archdiocese of Lipa.

Currently, the bishopric of Gumaca is vacant since its last bishop, the Most Rev. Buenaventura Malayo Famadico D.D., was moved to the Diocese of San Pablo. The current administrator of the diocese is Rev. Msgr. Jose T. Lagdameo, HP, J.C.L.. Its vicar-general and cathedral rector is Rev. Msgr. Ordelo Lontoc, PC, STD.
