The Catholic Church in Ecuador comprises only a Latin hierarchy, united in a national episcopal conference, which comprises :

The Metropolitan Archbishopric of Quito is the Primatial see of Ecuador.[2]

There is an Apostolic Nunciature as papal diplomatic representation (embassy level), in national capital Quito.

There are no Eastern Catholic jurisdictions and no titular sees. All defunct jurisdictions have current successor sees.

The boundaries of the 24 administrative provinces of Ecuador mostly coincide with the boundaries of most territorial ecclesiastical jurisdictions.

These are directly dependent on the Holy See.
