The Catholic Church in Brazil comprises forty-four ecclesiastical provinces each headed by a Metropolitan archbishop. The provinces are in turn subdivided into 215 dioceses (including 4 eparchies), 45 archdioceses and 12 territorial prelatures, each headed by a bishop or an archbishop. These 272 divisions make the largest number of Catholic dioceses in any country.

Additionally, Brazil has a Military Ordinariate, the world's only personal apostolic administration (Latin extraordinary form of the Roman Rite), and for Eastern Churches, besides the Ukrainian province, an Ordinariate for the Faithful of Eastern Rites and an Apostolic Exarchate for Armenian Catholics.
