According to their survey, 52% attend religious services weekly and 68% pray daily. The Kansas City area is home to more than 2000 religious congregations of more than a dozen faiths. Maggie Finefrock, chairwoman of the religion/spirituality cluster of the Mayor's Task Force on Race Relations, stated: "The Kansas City area provides a rich diversity of religious and spiritual experiences and many opportunities to learn from and about one another."
