well....religion is more like set codes of conduct, like going to church every sunday,blah blah blah. Spirituality is...well....the belief that there is a god, he just doesnt really give a damn what you do, you decide how to live your life.
I think, forgive me if im wrong...

You can always go to the Bible, go with the seven sacraments and see what the religion asks you. Then compare it to what you can find on what spirituality means.

You aren't entirely wrong...but you'll come to find out with your research that you don't need to believe in god at all to be a spiritual person, it's just more common that way. Good luck with your project. I know how nerve racking those things can be.

Absolutley not!

RELIGION IS SOMETHING YOU DO BECAUSE SOMEONE MAKES YOU.

SPRITUALITY IS SOMETHING YOU CHOOSE TO FEEL OR IGNORE.
