Religion

Religious life has been an integral part of culture in the United States.  It has served as a door through which many immigrant communities have integrated into American society.  Latino communities are no exception and their influence can be seen in their dedication and affluence among many faiths.  In particular, today Latinos constitute the single largest ethnic group of the Catholic Church in the United States.

Aside from spiritual satisfaction, religious life can be modified to accommodate any type of civic engagement one wants to commit to.  The beautiful thing about religious life is that within each faith, all who adhere to its doctrine are considered citizens of equal status, surpassing the norms found within other political and social hierarchies.  It is something that brings people together from all facets of society and has a particularly vibrant presence in the Hartford community.

Provided in this section of the site is information that will hopefully aid you in choosing a most rewarding religious experience in Hartford.
