Report Shows Lafayette Is The Most Catholic City In U.S.
A new report by the Barna Group shows Lafayette is the most Catholic city in America. That's right, we have a higher percentage of Catholics in Lafayette than even Boston and New York do with their huge Irish and Italian populations. There's a reason for the three famous Cajun questions of "Who's ya Mama? Are you Catholic? Can you make a Roux?"
Aleteia.org says that "the most Catholic city in America is way down South: Lafayette, Louisiana, is 50 percent Catholic."
By comparison, coming in at number two is the Harlingen, Weslaco, Brownsville, McAllen area in Texas where 42% of the population is Catholic.
