Christianity among Hispanic and Latino Americans

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Latinos and Hispanics are predominantly Christians in the United States. Specifically, they are most often Roman Catholic.

Roman Catholicism

The Spaniards took the Roman Catholic faith to Latin America, and Roman Catholicism continues to be the largest, but not the only, religious denomination amongst most Hispanics.

Among the Hispanic Catholics, most communities celebrate their homeland's patron saint, dedicating a day for this purpose with festivals and religious services. Some Hispanics syncretize Roman Catholicism and African or Native American rituals and beliefs despite the Catholic Church's teachings against such syncretic combinations of Catholicism and paganism.

Such is the case of Santería, popular with Cuban Americans and Puerto Ricans and which combines old African beliefs in the form of Roman Catholic saints and ritual.

Other Christian denominations

A significant number of Hispanics are also Protestant, and several Protestant denominations (particularly Evangelical ones) have vigorously proselytized in Hispanic communities. In Texas, half of Hispanics are Protestant.

Trends

As of 2014, 24% of Hispanic adults in the United States are former Catholics. 55%, or about 19.6 million Latinos, of the United State Hispanic population identify as Catholic. 22% are Protestant, 16% being Evangelical Protestants, and the last major category places 18% as unaffiliated, which means they have no particular religion or identify as atheist or agnostic.[1]
