Brief Profile

Catalan people trace their historic origins chiefly located in northern Spain. They also makeup people with origins adjacent with southern France, known as Catalonia. Also, they include people from other areas where the Catalan language is spoken.

The Catalan language is a Romance language. Romance languages are modern languages that evolved from spoken Latin.

Catalans claim Roman Catholic as their religion of source. However, the majority are more influenced and live a lifestyle of secularization. Hence, most Catalans are non-practicing Catholics, and are practicing agnostics and atheists.

Due to the continued identification with a distinct identity, many Catalans support Catalan nationalism or Catalan independentism in Spain.

Prayer Points

  • Ask God to reveal to Catalan atheists and agnostics that there is a true and living God.
  • Pray that God will grant wisdom and favor to evangelical Christians and churches to engage the Catalan people with intentional church planting strategies.
  • Ask the Lord to save key leaders among the Catalan people who will boldly declare the Gospel.
