Faith, Spirituality, and Religion

In 2014, the Pew Research Center conducted its second Religious Landscape Study, based on telephone interviews more than 35,000 Americans from all 50 states. The city of Boston historically has been a center of Catholicism.  Over time, the city has come to reflect a greater religious diversity.

Of the 62.84% of the people in Boston who identified themselves as religious, meaning they affiliate with a religion, 48.22% are Catholic; 0.50% are LDS; 4.86% are protestant Christian; 0.71% are Jewish; 1.02% are from an eastern-based faith; 1.09% are followers of Islam.

If you wish to engage in worship, prayer, and/or meditation while at Convention, please utilize the list below to find a potential place of worship for you while in Boston. There will also be a Meditation, Prayer, and Reflection room, located in the Convention Center, sponsored by the Commission for Spirituality, Faith, Religion, and Meaning.
