The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Winnipeg (Latin: Archidioecesis Vinnipegensis) is a Roman Catholic archdiocese that includes part of the Province of Manitoba. It was previously led by archbishop emeritus James Weisgerber. The archdiocese is the only diocese in Canada that is immediately subject to the Holy See, as it is not part of an ecclesiastical province.[1]


As of 2010, the archdiocese contains 92 parishes, 60 active diocesan priests, 26 religious priests, and 166,000 Catholics. It also has 27 Religious Brothers, 113 Religious Sisters, and 19 permanent deacons. The cathedral of the archdiocese is St. Mary's Cathedral in Winnipeg.
