Latino Americans make up 17% of the population and are present in religious groups of every kind. While there is a rising presence of Latino Muslims in America, the majority of Latinos identify with the Roman Catholic Church or some Protestant denomination.

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, The Hufffington Post is proud to recognize these seven religious leaders who represent a range of religious perspectives and are shaping the wider religious, spiritual and political landscape of America.

If you have other Latino leaders that you would like to honor, we invite you to leave a description of them in the comments!
