The Military Bishopric of Hungary (Hungarian: Tábori Püspökség, Latin: Ordinariatus Militaris Hungariae) is a military ordinariate of the Roman Catholic Church. Immediately subject to the Holy See, it provides pastoral care to Roman Catholics serving in the Hungarian Home Defence Force and their families.

History[edit]

The first military bishop was appointed on 23 March 1920, but after the first bishop resigned in 1926 the post fell into abeyance. Nearly seventy years later, a military ordinariate for Hungary was established by Pope John Paul II on 18 April 1994.
