History[edit | edit source]
Laos does not have an official state religion. Most of the Lao population is Buddhist. The three largest Christian churches are: the Lao Evangelical Church, the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Roman Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church has had a presence in Laos since 1885.
