D.E.S. Portuguese Club 2018 “Emporator”-Elja Bagaco

Elja Bagco  Elja Neves Bagaco seen here with her father (Manuel Neves) several years ago, is the 2018  “Emporator” for the Feast of the Holy Spirit on Trinity Sunday.

Her daughter Delia Morrissey will be representing her during the procession and ceremonies.

Elja Bagaco was diagnosed with ALS in January 2017 and the disease has quickly progressed. Since then, she has required a G-tube and then had a respiratory arrest in November. She now has a trach and on a vent. The family desperately wanted to get her home requiring a 24/7 nursing care.  She is now being lovely cared for at home.

The entire Portuguese community prays to the Holy Spirit to give strength to Elja and her entire family.

See below the  many participants at the Rosary and Mass this week with Father “Jim” Achadinha from Our Lady of Good Voyage.

2016 DES Crowning-individuals

_2016_05_22_084244The Crowning (Coronation) concludes the principal religious ceremonies and involves the placement of the silver crown on the head of the individuals. Each person crowned has a personal reason or a promise they made to God.

Manuel and Alexandria Nunes, the Mordomos for this year, also celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary, and received blessing by Father Jim Achadinha.

DES Crowning–Celebrate with “Sopas”

IMG_4418Father “jim” Achadinha and Father Gene Alves and the Portuguese community commemoration of 13th Century Queen Isabella, who fed the soup to the starving peasants after the famine. The soup consists of Cabbage, beef and a tasty stew like sauce over bread.

For me it’s all about the juices, which has a hint of mint.
