Bishop Dominic Manucy (December 20, 1828, St. Augustine, Florida – February 7, 1885, Mobile, Alabama) was a Roman Catholic bishop who served as the third Bishop of Mobile.


Manucy was a member of a prominent Minorican family from St. Augustine, Florida, and a first cousin of Bishop Anthony Dominic Pellicer (1824–1880) of San Antonio, Texas. The two bishops were both grandsons of Francisco Pellicer, who led the Minorcan settlers from horrendous conditions in New Smyrna, Florida to St. Augustine in 1777, where the Minorcans were given sanctuary and remained, through various changes of flags, to become the oldest families in the city.

After theological studies at Spring Hill College, he was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Mobile on August 15, 1850. He was named Vicar Apostolic of the newly established Vicariate of Brownsville, Texas and was appointed Titular Bishop of Dulma on December 8, 1874.

Manucy was appointed Bishop of Mobile on January 18, 1884, and was installed March 30, 1884. Though Bishop of Mobile, he still remained the Vicar Apostolic of Brownsville. He resigned as Bishop of Mobile on September 27, 1884 to return to Brownsville, but died in Mobile on February 7, 1885, before he could return to Brownsville.

He is entombed in the crypt of the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Mobile, Alabama.
