Parish Marian Day marks the beginning of the commemorations of the Our Lady of Grace day

Praia, Aug 9 (Inforpress) – The Parish of Our Lady of Grace, in the framework of the First Marian Day, is holding a conference today, with speakers such as the Vicar General of the Diocese of Mindelo, Father Paulo Vaz, and the jugde Sara Boal, who also studied Theology.

According to Father Ima, parish priest of Our Lady Grace, the two speakers will help the faithful to “meditate” around Mary, Mother of Christ.

“On Friday, we are going to have a night with Maria in the Mother Church. We will spend all night praying at the feet of the image of Our Lady and at five in the morning we will have adoration of the Blessed One looking at Jesus, the son of Mary, who is our Savior,” said Father Ima.

For Saturday, a Marian show is planned at the Parish Center, where each of the 12 communities that make up the Parish will present a play entitled “Singing Mary”.

According to the program, on the 14th, vespers are planned, followed by the procession of candles and on the 15th is the mass in honor of the patron saint, which will be presided by Father Constantina Bento, who is a vicar general of the Diocese of South Santiago and Maio, since Bishop Arlindo Furtado is in an ecclesiastical mission in Portugal, where he presides on the 12th and 13th, in Fatima, to the International Anniversary Pilgrimage that marks the fourth apparition of Our Lady to the Little Shepherds.
