The Roman Catholic Diocese of Mostar-Duvno

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Mostar-Duvno is an ecclesiastical territory or diocese of the Roman Catholic Church encompassing Herzegovina. The diocese, as well as the Franciscan Province, is centred in the city of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was formed on July 5, 1881. However, the Diocese of Duvno existed long before 1881, and was erected sometime in the 6th century.

The seat of the bishopric is in the Cathedral of Mary the Mother of the Church. The diocese releases two monthly magazines: Naša ognjišta by the Franciscan Province, and Crkva na kamenu by the bishopric.
