LATINOS CHANGING WORSHIP PATTERNS

Jeff Weiss and Dianne Solis, two of my favorite reporters at the circulation-declining DMN, work through a fascinating new Pew study on the impact of the growing Latino presence in the U.S. (and Dallas) on religion and worship services. Although Latinos have been tracked for some time heading to various Protestant denominations (an 18 percent conversion rate mostly from Catholicism), the study says that 68 percent of Hispanics still identify themselves as members of Wick’s and Tim’s faith. The study also reports how family- and community-oriented Latinos are shaping the direction of local churches, including the Dec. 12 celebration of the Virgin of Guadalupe in downtown Dallas. Bienvenidos, Bishop Farrell.
