Dionisia Talangpaz is a Filipino Roman Catholic figure. She is one of the foundresses of the "Beaterio de San Sebastian de Calumpang" (now the Congregation of the Augustinian Recollect Sisters, in 1719.



Dionisia was born on March 12, 1691, in Calumpit, Bulacan to half-Kapampangan parents. Together with her sister Cecilia Rosa De Jesus Talangpaz, they settled down near the shrine of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Manila. Their devout life attracted the attention of the shrine's caretakers, Augustinian Recollects, and by July 1725, the sisters received the habit of tertiaries and were gathered in a beaterium.
