Abstract:Many studies of immigrants in the U.S. show how American Catholicism has been a gateway for their adaptation. In 1990, Indonesians in the U.S. constituted only 0.5% of all Asian immigrants. This thesis examines the experiences of Indonesian immigrants and the social role of Catholicism for Indonesians in the U.S. It explores the dynamics of the Indonesian Catholic Community in Chicago as a small immigrant group community. The study uses grounded theory in analyzing data from participant observation and open-ended interviews. Wide geographical distribution forces Indonesians to blend in with Americans. The community maintains Indonesian identity by providing quasi-Indonesian atmosphere through Indonesian language gatherings featuring Indonesian food. It helps Indonesian Catholics, who were often unsuccessful in efforts to mingle with Americans, to overcome their decreasing sense of identity after being stripped of their language and economic privileges they had in Indonesia.
