  • The following is a list of bishops of the Catholic Church in the United States, including its five overseas dependencies. The U.S. Catholic Church comprises 177 Latin Church dioceses and 18 Eastern Catholic eparchies led by diocesan bishops or eparchs, and an apostolic exarchate, the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, and the ; the Personal Ordinary—though not a bishop—is the equivalent of a diocesan bishop in canon law. The 177 Latin dioceses are divided into 32 ecclesiastical provinces. Each province has a metropolitan archdiocese led by an archbishop, and at least one suffragan diocese. In some cases, a titular archbishop is named diocesan bishop of a diocese that is not a metropolitan archdiocese, for example, Archbishop Celestine Damiano, Bishop of Camden (New Jersey). In most archdioceses and some large dioceses, one or more auxiliary bishops serve in association with the diocesan bishop. There are also two Eastern Catholic metropoliae. The four Byzantine Catholic eparchies constitute one metropolia, with as the metropolitan see, led by a metropolitan archbishop. Similarly, the four Ukrainian Catholic eparchies constitute one metropolia, with as the metropolitan see. (One archbishop—that of the Archdiocese for the Military Services—is not a metropolitan.) As of May 2016, four of these metropolitans are cardinals of the Catholic Church: Boston (Seán O'Malley), Galveston-Houston (Daniel DiNardo), New York (Timothy Dolan), and Washington (Donald Wuerl). Nine archdioceses, including two just mentioned above, have retired archbishops who are cardinals: Baltimore (William Keeler, Edwin O'Brien), Boston (Bernard Law), Denver (James Stafford), Detroit (Adam Maida), Los Angeles (Roger Mahony), Philadelphia (Justin Rigali), San Francisco (William Levada), St. Louis (Raymond Burke), and Washington (Theodore McCarrick). All active and retired bishops in the United States and the Territory of the U.S. Virgin Islands—diocesan, coadjutor, and auxiliary—are members of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). In addition to the 195 dioceses, one exarchate, and one personal ordinariate, there are several dioceses in the nation's other four overseas dependencies. In the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the bishops in the six dioceses (one metropolitan archdiocese and five suffragan dioceses) form their own episcopal conference, the Conferencia Episcopal Puertorriqueña. The bishops in U.S. insular areas in the Pacific Ocean—the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Territory of American Samoa, and the Territory of Guam—are members of the Episcopal Conference of the Pacific.
