The Roman Catholic Diocese of San Jose de Antique (Lat: Dioecesis Sancti Iosephi de Antiquonia) is a Roman Rite diocese of the Latin Church of the Catholic Church centered in the city of San Jose de Buenavista, Antique in the Philippines.


Erected on 18 June 1962 as the Territorial Prelature of San Jose de Antique, the territorial prelate was separated from the Archdiocese of Jaro. It comprises the whole province of Antique.

On 15 November 1982, the prelature was elevated to a diocese, and became suffragan to the Archdiocese of Jaro.

Currently, the local ordinary is the Most Reverend Jose Romeo O. Lazo, D.D.
