The Bishop of Lindisfarne is a titular bishop in the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales.

In 1970, the Roman Catholic Church revived the title Bishop of Lindisfarne, using Lindisfarna as the name of the titular see, but Lindisfarnensis as the adjectival form in Latin.[1] So far, three titular bishops have served, all functioning as auxiliary bishops in the Archdiocese of Westminster.[1]
