The Roman Catholic Diocese of Timișoara (Hungarian: Temesvári Római Katolikus Püspökség) is a diocese in Romania established on 5 June 1930 by Pope Pius XI. The Diocese of Cenad, corresponding to approximately the same region, had been created in 1030 by Stephen I of Hungary.
The diocese covers the Romanian Banat—the counties of Timiş, Caraş-Severin, Arad and part of Mehedinţi, of which 11.1% are Roman Catholic, with compact concentrations in the Krashovani areas near Reşiţa and Sânnicolau Mare. A plurality of its adherents are Hungarian, followed by Banat Swabians, Romanians, Banat Bulgarians, Croats, Slovaks and Czechs. It is subordinate to the Bucharest Archdiocese. Since 1999, its bishop is Martin Roos.
