The Apostolic Vicariate of Taytay is a Latin Catholic pre-diocesan missionary jurisdiction in the island of Palawan in the Philippines.

It is not a part of any ecclesiastical province as it is directly subject to the Holy See (under the jurisdiction of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples), yet for the purpose of apostolic cooperation usually grouped with the Archdiocese of Manila, along with the Roman Catholic Apostolic Vicariate of Puerto Princesa.

Its episcopal see is the Cathedral of Saint Joseph the Worker, in Taytay, Palawan.


It was established on 27 March 2002[1] as the Apostolic Vicariate of Taytay when it split off from the Apostolic Vicariate of Palawan. The latter then became the Apostolic Vicariate of Puerto Princesa.
