Religions


The Roman Catholic Church accounts for about one-half of all the church members in the state. Of the Protestant denominations the Baptists are most numerous, followed by the Episcopalians, and Methodists. Many Orthodox Christians live in the state. There are large Jewish communities in most of the state’s major cities.

Congregationalism was established by law as the official religion of the Connecticut and New Haven colonies when the colonies were founded in the 17th century. It remained the official religion until the 1818 constitution was adopted. The congregation of each church was its own governing body, and there was nearly complete independence of all outside ecclesiastical control. After 1708 the churches lost their form of self-government and were placed under the administration of the various counties. "Connecticut" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
