The Patriarchate of Venice ( Latin : Patriarchatus Venetiarum , Italian : Patriarcato di Venezia ) is a Roman Catholic metropolitan bishopric and titular patriarchate of the Roman Church ; the patriarch has no particular jurisdiction .

The bishops of Olivolo (774-1092) and of Castello (from 1092) in the northeast of Venice have had the title of patriarch since 1451 , after the Patriarchate of Grado was united with their diocese. The cathedral of the Patriarch of Venice was the church of San Pietro di Castello in the Sestiere Castello until 1807 . Only then did St. Mark's Basilica become the cathedral church of the Patriarchate.

The suffragan dioceses of the Patriarchate are Adria-Rovigo , Belluno-Feltre , Chioggia , Concordia-Pordenone , Padua , Treviso , Verona , Vicenza and Vittorio Veneto . The current Patriarch of Venice is Francesco Moraglia (since 2012).

The Patriarchs of Venice are traditionally elevated to cardinal status. In the 20th century, three Venetian patriarchs became Popes ( Pius X. 1903, John XXIII. 1958 and John Paul I. 1978).

In 2013, the seat of the church leadership was moved to the Calle degli Albanesi behind the Doge's Palace in the Palazzo Patriarcale .
