  • Bishops of San Pedro (Roman rite)
    • Bishop Pierre Jubinville (6 November 2013 – present)
    • Bishop Adalberto Martínez Flores (February 19, 2007 – March 14, 2012)
    • Bishop Fernando Armindo Lugo Méndez, S.V.D. (March 5, 1994 – January 11, 2005). Bishop Lugo requested laicization in 2005 to allow him to run for President of Paraguay. The Church at first refused, going so far as to suspend him as bishop when he ran for office anyway, but eventually granted lay status after he was elected.[1]
