The Catholic Diocese of Saint Gallen (Latin: Diœcesis Sancti Galli) is a Catholic diocese in St. Gallen, Switzerland.

The diocese was created in 1847 from the territory of the episcopal see of Chur-St. Gallen. Much of the territory had earlier been part of the Diocese of Konstanz.

The St Gallen Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the see of the diocese.
