The Eparchy of Karaganda is a diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church with jurisdiction over the province of Karaganda in the Republic of Kazakhstan. In July 2010, the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church established the Orthodox Church in Kazakhstan as a metropolia, with the Eparchy of Karaganda becoming one of its constituent eparchies three months later.
