The Military Bishopric of Chile (Spanish: Obispado Castrense de Chile) is a military ordinariate of the Roman Catholic Church. Immediately subject to the Holy See, it provides pastoral care to Roman Catholics serving in the Chilean Armed Forces and their families.


It was first established as a military vicariate on 3 May 1910 with the first military vicar appointment on 27 May 1910. It was elevated to a military ordinariate 21 July 1986. The military ordinary's seat is located at the Military Cathedral of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Catedral Castrense de Nuestra Señora del Carmen) in the city of Santiago, Chile.
