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

History[edit]

San Marino is a predominantly Catholic state — over 97% of the population profess the Catholic faith, but it is not the established religion. There is no episcopal see in San Marino. Historically, the various parishes in San Marino were divided between two Italian dioceses, mostly in the Diocese of Montefeltro, and partly in the Diocese of Rimini. In 1977, the border between Montefeltro and Rimini was readjusted so that all of San Marino fell within the diocese of Montefeltro. The bishop of Montefeltro-San Marino resides in Pennabilli, in Italy.
