Life After Death

Religious demographics in Haiti are distributed as follows in the Haitian population: Roman Catholic 80%, Protestant 16% (Baptist 10%, Pentecostal 4%, Adventist 1%, other 1%), none 1%, other 3%.

Haitian Catholics, Baptists, Protestants and other Christians accept as true the existence of heaven, hell and purgatory; that the fate of the departed depends on how he lived his life on Earth. They believe in the teaching of the Catholic Church's teachings which holds that people who led a good life tend to go to Heaven, where they will be with God, angels, departed relatives, and fellow believers.

Voodoo is also practiced. It encompasses several different traditions, and is widespread in rural parts of the country. Voodoo followers believe in a supreme being called Gran Met, who is known for creating the world and that even after death, a person's soul remains around until it is reborn.
