Weaving Immigrant Faith Together

(p.115) Conclusion
Immigrant Faith

Phillip Connor

NYU Press

This book concludes by recapping the broad patterns of immigrants' religious adaptation. It first considers religious identity (religious affiliation with a particular religious group) and religious practice (frequency of religious attendance at religious services) to describe some aspects of immigrant faith, from migration through to the role of religion for second-generation immigrants. It then examines the ways that immigrant religion is practiced within religious organizations and goes on to discuss how the context of reception can affect who moves where, how immigrants adapt their religion to their new surroundings, and how religion can help or hinder immigrant integration. It also outlines the differences between religious minorities and religious majorities in terms of experiences in their new destinations and concludes with an assessment of future religious trends in the flow of migrants to and from almost anywhere in the world.
