The fact that recent immigrants to the United States continue to participate in the daily life of the society from which they emigrate is true for religious identities and behaviors as well as in political, economic and family life. This paper describes transnational religious ties between immigrants in six American religious congregations and family, friends and coreligionists in the home country. In addition to monetary exchanges that benefit religious purpose, there are also exchanges of norms, practices, and social capital. The varied pathways whereby remittances are exchanged are also described. The religious exchanges between home and host countries impact global religious systems. Printed Pages: 327.
