    Catholicism is descendant from the Christian religion, when people are thought to practice their religion in knowing and understanding things like commitment to faith, the sacraments, mediation between god and communion, a understanding of sin and redemption, and understanding the phases between life and death and the consequences of having the final judgment in the need of time.

    Migration Patterns in Bushwick
    Background:As far as history goes back, people have beeen migrating from place to place inorder to find more satability or find a safter way of living.These people are called migrants or immigrants. Migration can happen within a country or it can happen internationally. The reasons people may leave their country are based on the major factors, these factors are called push and pull factors.
    Push Factors: These are factors that makes that person leave his or her country. These factors amy be economic reaons within the country,environmental problems, healt hazards, genocides in the countries and civil wars.
    Pull Factors:These are the complete opposite of push factors. These factors pull people to their country. The United States is considered the god of pull factors.There is a somewhat good economic system, good health care system,good eduation system and an overall good way of living.
    As Bushwick grew, businesses grew. In the 1840s and 1850s German immigrants started coming to the America to flee from the war happpening their country.They were quickly drawn to Bushwick since there were factories which meant that jobs which meant money and food to eat.The Dutch population became out populated by the German people.
    Soon after the German begamn to open beer businesses and sell beer. They open large breweries in Bushwick German immigrants opened large breweries in the area which later became very successful. Bushwick was called "The Beer Capital of the Northwest".
    Today in Bushwick their are still cemeteries that consists mainly of German immigrants.One of these cemeteries is Most Holy Trinity. This cemetry is very weird and unique because all the head stones are made from steel and metal.
    Italians Come to Bushwick: Soon after many Italian immigrants quickly poured into Bushwick, many of them who would sooon find job in German bewereies. They worked in these breweries as a way to pay rent and put food on the table. By the 1950s Bushwick had one of the largest Italian populations out of the five Boroughs in New York City. These Itlaians would later move out because many beweries were being closed or shut down. This is what would forever change Bushwick and cause its steady decline.This lead to many African Americans and Latinos moving in to the communities that were once home to the Italians.
    Africans Americans And Latinos Follow: When African Americans and latinos started to moved Bushwick, it became a very bad place. These were poor working class Latinos and Blacks.The rents became cheaper, corners became filled with graffiti and houses became worn down.By the 1960s and 1970s Bushwick had become one of the poorest neighbourhood because of loots, drugs and arson.
    Latinos in Bushwick Today: Today Bushwick is heavily populated with many Latin American immigrants or latino Born American.The Latin culture is every where in Bushwick, from restuarants to sale vendors and residents.This map show all the different Latin groups who came to Bushwick and had kids. That is why Bushwick continues to have one of the largest Latin groups.

    ...
    Black immigration began during the mid to late 1950's, centered in the mostly one and two family housing communities situated near Bedford-Stuyvesant and in southern Bushwick. This largely represented a continuum of the migration that occurred in other north Brooklyn communities after the end of the war, as the long term white residents departed to the suburbs and created housing opportunities for new residents. The blacks that lived in Bushwick during this time were working class and were strongly oriented to home ownership.The Hispanic Migration came later around the 1960s rite when the Italians were about to leave. They came as mostly poor and welfare dependent.
