The Catholic Church in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is part of the Catholic Church in communion with the Bishop of Rome, the Pope.
The state of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines includes the island of Saint Vincent and part of the archipelago of the Grenadines. The Catholic religion is the third in the country after the Anglicanism and Methodism. On 23 October 1989 was erected the Diocese of Kingstown by Pope John Paul II, following the division of the Diocese of Bridgetown-Kingstown, from which it originated also the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgetown. The Diocese of Kingstown is the only ecclesiastical district in the country. It includes seven parishes, including 3 on the island of Saint Vincent and four in the Grenadines. The local bishop is a member by right of the Antilles Episcopal Conference.
