The constitution guarantees freedom of religion and freedom to express opinions on religious subjects. Roman Catholicism is the state religion and state ceremonies often include Catholic rituals. The government recognizes Christianity, Islam, and Judaism as religions and considers registration of other religious groups on a case-by-case basis. In August Prince Albert issued a formal apology to Jewish Holocaust victims and dedicated a memorial at the national cemetery.
There were no reports of significant societal incidents affecting religious freedom.
The U.S. Consul General in Marseille met with religious leaders to discuss their views on religious freedom.
