CWN Editor's Note: The Caribbean nation of 295,000 (map) is 90% Protestant and 5% Catholic. “Catholicism here dates back to the outbreak of the English Civil War in 1649 when Irish Catholics were deported here during the reign of Oliver Cromwell, and were forced to practice their faith in caves,” according to the report.
