Religion in U.S Virgin Islands

In the U.S. Virgin Islands, the predominant religion is Christianity (94.8%), with a majority of the population identifying as Roman Catholic or Protestant, including various denominations such as Anglican, Methodist, and Lutheran. The presence of Christianity in the islands can be traced back to the European colonial period, with missionary activities contributing to the establishment of churches and religious institutions. Additionally, there is a notable influence of Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Crucian spiritual traditions, such as the practice of obeah and other syncretic forms of spirituality that blend African, European, and indigenous elements.
