Template:Infobox diocese The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Reims (Template:Lang-la) is an archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in France. Erected as a diocese around 250 by St. Sixtus, the diocese was elevated to an archdiocese around 750. The archbishop received the title "primate of Gallia Belgica" in 1089.

In 1023, Archbishop Ebles acquired the Countship of Reims, making him a prince-bishop; it became a duchy and a peerage between 1060 and 1170.

The archdiocese comprises the arrondissement of Reims and the département of Ardennes while the province comprises the région of Champagne-Ardenne. The suffragan dioceses within Reims are Amiens, Beauvais-Noyon-Senlis, Châlons, Langres, Soissons–Laon–Saint-Quentin, and Troyes. The archepiscopal see is located in the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Reims, where the Kings of France were traditionally crowned.

Pope John Paul II appointed Archbishop Thierry Romain Camille Jordan as Archbishop of Reims in 1999. On June 28, 2013, Pope Francis appointed Father Bruno Feillet as an Auxiliary Bishop-elect of the Archdiocese of Reims; Feillet, a native of Caudéran, France (Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Bordeaux) and a priest of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cambrai, in Cambrai, France, had been serving as a Professor of philosophy and moral theology in Morocco, as Archdiocesan Director of Lifelong Learning, and as Pastor/Dean of the urban agglomeration of Valenciennes, France.
