The Roman Catholic Church in Switzerland, unlike elsewhere, does not consist of a distinct ecclesiastical province. Instead, all the dioceses are immediately subject to the Holy See. Currently, there are six dioceses and two territorial Abbeys wholly in Switzerland. The only exception is the former diocese of Konstanz. In 1817, the Pope merged the diocese of Konstanz into the Archdiocese of Friburg in Germany, where it remains to this day.
