The first Catholic church in Trinidad was built in 1591. According to the 1990 census, Roman Catholics make up the largest religious group in the nation, at 29% of the population. I took an All Saints Day evening stroll through La Peruse Cemetery in Woodbrook, where families lit candles of remembrance on the graves of loved ones. The next day, at the Monastery of Mount St. Benedict, I observed monks honor their departed brethren on All Souls Day.
