In the United States, people of all different backgrounds live together. Today, more than one in eight people in the United States are Hispanic, and Latino communities are an important part of America. Hispanic Americans are people from different lands, cultures, and backgrounds–but they share some things in common. One of the most important is their faith. Latinos may be Catholic or Protestant, or they may belong to the Jewish or Muslim faiths; some practice Santeria, a religion that has its roots in Africa. Despite these differences, Hispanic Americans all tend to feel religion is very important to their lives. Discover how Hispanic Americans are living out their faith in different ways within the Latino community–and how they are making America a better place in the process!
