The Italian Catholic Diocese of Frosinone-Veroli-Ferentino(Latin: Dioecesis Frusinatensis-Verulana-Ferentina) has existed since 1986. In that year, the Diocese of Ferentino was united into the Diocese of Veroli-Frosinone; which was the name of the historic Diocese of Veroli from 1956. It is immediately subject to the Holy See. In 2013 there was one priest for every 1,685 Catholics in the diocese.

Veroli was only fifty-two miles from Rome, and therefore an excellent benefice for a prelate who was employed in the Roman Curia.
In a bull of 18 June 1081 Pope Gregory VII confirmed the extent of the territory of the diocese of Veroli for Bishop Albert. Pope Urban II confirmed the possessions of the Church of Veroli in a bull of 2 July 1097, and the provisions of the bull were repeated by Pope Paschal II in a bull of 4 September 1108, written for the benefit of Bishop Albert.
