The Diocese of Gibraltar is currently vacant - Sede vacante.

The Diocese was formed on 19 November 1910 when the Vicariate Apostolic of Gibraltar was elevated to become a diocese.

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean.

The Bishop of Gibraltar is the ordinary of the Diocese and is immediately subject to the Holy See.

Statistics show that roughly three quarters of the 28,800 people living in Gibraltar are Catholic - almost 22,000 people.

A bishop for the Diocese of Gibraltar will be announced by the Holy See in due course.
