While catholics take the spot lights during Lent and the Holy Week in Antigua Guatemala, evangelical churches (that’s what protestant churches are called in Guatemala) pop up anywhere they are allowed. To be honest, I wish I knew what are the requirements to open up an evangelical church, but it must not very difficult because in some municipalities there are over 7,000 evangelical churches. La Antigua Guatemala is still the strong hold of catholics, so I don’t think there are as many protestant churches as in other municipalities, but still I believe there are so many more evangelical churches than catholics in Antigua Guatemala; that’s probably true for the rest of the country.
