Dear Friends,

Today we celebrate the Senhor de Matosinhos!

A party for all tastes! From the abundance, to the fireworks of the dolls, from the carousels to the Crockery Fair, from the fireworks to the exhibitions, concerts, folklore, grilled sardines, the Handicraft Fair, beautifully decorated streets, nothing was missing this year for the long-awaited return of the City Festivities, and after two years marked by the constraints imposed by the pandemic.

It is celebrated on the Tuesday following Pentecost Sunday, a moveable calendar date that occurs seven weeks after Easter.

One of the biggest attractions of this pilgrimage is the Church of Bom Jesus de Matosinhos and its beautiful decorations, which even look like a garden or even a work of art. A must visit!

Today, the Solemn Eucharist of the Feast of Bom Jesus de Matosinhos, presided over by His Excellency the Reverend Bishop D. Manuel Linda, at 11 am, in the Church of Bom Jesus de Matosinhos, stands out.

We wish a great holiday to all "matosinhenses" (inhabitants of Matosinhos)!

A huge HUUUUG! Fatima C. Brízio
