Gerald Nicholas Dino (born January 11, 1940) is an American prelate of the Ruthenian Catholic Church. He was the bishop of the Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Phoenix from 2008 to 2016.

Dino was born in 1940 in Binghamton, New York. On March 21, 1965, he was ordained a priest for the Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Passaic. On December 6, 2007, Pope Benedict XVI appointed him bishop of the Eparchy of Van Nuys, and on March 27, 2008 he was consecrated a bishop.[1]

At his request, Pope Benedict XVI transferred the see of the Eparchy of Van Nuys to Phoenix, Arizona in February 2010.[2]

On reaching the age of 75, Dino submitted his resignation to Pope Francis, who accepted it and appointed his successor John Stephen Pazak in May 2016.[3]
