The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Castries (Latin: Archidioecesis Castriensis) is an archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in the Caribbean. The archdiocese consists of the entirety of the former British dependency of Saint Lucia. The archdiocese is the metropolitan of four dioceses: Diocese of Roseau, the Diocese of Saint George's in Grenada, and the Diocese of St. John's-Basseterre. The archdiocese is a member of the Antilles Episcopal Conference.
Erected as the Diocese of Castries in 1956 from the former metropolitan of Port of Spain, the diocese was elevated to an archdiocese in November 1974.
