The Catalonians originated in the northeast region of Spain called Catalonia where Barcelona is located. Along with Spanish, they speak their own language, though this is becoming increasingly rare. Catalonia is the most prosperous region in Spain. They regard themselves as European rather than as Spaniards.
Catalonians have migrated to many countries in Europe such as France.
They have a reputation for being hard workers and ambitious. Most Catalonians work in industry or in service jobs. Some work in agriculture.
Football/soccer is the favorite sport among Catalonians. They like watching television and going to museums. Their cuisine often includes tomatoes, nuts, garlic, onions and mushrooms.
Most Catalonians are classed as Catholics, but few attend church regularly. Most are secular.
Catalonians need to understand that only Jesus Christ can satisfy their spiritual needs.
Pray for a spiritual revival, both among Catalonian speakers and among those who attend Roman Catholic churches in Europe.
Pray for Catalonian disciples to make more disciples and for their families to be abundantly blessed.
Pray for the Lord to provide them with Christian materials in the Catalonian language.
