History of the Cajuns: Encyclopedia of Cajun Life
Religion

     Like their ancestors, Cajuns of the 18th century were Catholic.  The vast majority of them were still Catholic well into the 19th century.  In the 1800s, however, Protestant churches sprang up around south Louisiana.  By the 20th century, it is not a certaintly for a Cajun to be Catholic.  But the Catholic church still plays an important role in Acadiana.
