Las Animas County has always been home to individuals of several faiths, and the community has facilities for congregation and worship to meet the needs of many spiritual lifestyles. Early settlers built religious structures to serve as places of worship as well as places for families to meet and discuss the news of the day and to educate their children.
Facilities are in place to serve a great number of Christian denominations and several other faiths. Among many others, there are houses of worship for those of Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Jewish, Presbyterian, Episcopalian and Baptist communities.
Additionally, many of the religious organizations maintain close ties, cooperating in community planning and coordinating events to bring together individuals of different faiths.
