When I was stationed their in 1997-1998, Catholicism was the largest Christian denomination. It was great being their as I was involved with the English and Korean speak Cursillo community. As a result, St. Andrew Kim Taegon is one of my patrons.

Wow! This is a surprise. I thought the largest percentage of Koreans were Methodists.
