Everyone is welcome as the Portuguese community celebrates the Feast of the Holy Spirit. The intention is to share with others and help the less fortunate. José Pereira, who is originally from the Azores, explains that “no one is a VIP” at the celebrations. The Feast is organized for and by the common people. Baskets of meat, savoury and sweet breads and wine are prepared and distributed. There is also a procession and food for everyone. There’s nothing like the comfort of a community kitchen!
