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 and is a metropolitan see, the suffragans of the Castries Province being the Dioceses of Roseau, Saint George's in Grenada, St. John's-Basseterre and Kingstown. The archdiocese is a member of the Antilles Episcopal Conference.
Erected as the Diocese of Castries in 1956 from its then-metropolitan see of Port of Spain, it was elevated as an archdiocese in November 1974.
