Claude Dormy (c.1562 – 30 November 1626 in Paris) was a French Roman Catholic priest and bishop of Boulogne-sur-Mer from 1600 until his death. He was the nephew of Claude-André Dormy, who had also been bishop of Boulogne.

Life[edit]

He was a monk of Cluny Abbey and prior of Saint-Martin-des-Champs Priory. During his time as bishop he allowed the Capuchins to set up a monastery in Boulogne, laying the foundation stone of their church in 1618. He also set up an Ursuline monastery in the city in 1624.
