Funeral procession in Lascahobas
Lascahobas, a small community resting on the Central Plateau, is an hour's drive from the Dominican Republic. A population of 7,574 residents occupies the hamlet, a market center for the agricultural region surrounding it.
Overwhelmingly Christian, it tolerates the practice of Voodoo. At the start of the new millennium, missionaries of the Episcopal Church have been providing spiritual sustenance to Lascahobas and the communities of Cohoroes, Rantamoulie, La Hoye, and Poulie. Its church, St. Esprit, also operates a school.
