I am honoured to represent our Portuguese Community as the President of the 2013-2014 Festa do Espirito Santo. The Festa is celebrated year after year and although the Festa Presidents change, one aspect always remains the same; we are united as one family by the grace of the Holy Spirit, and honor and admire Queen St. Isabel. We are very proud of our Portuguese Community and its profound devotion to the Holy Spirit, and like our Faith, it is inseparable from our heritage. With that being said, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the UPCDES Board of Directors, Fundraiser Chairpersons & Committees, all Community Volunteers, our Portuguese Organization and the Participants for your continued devotion to the Holy Spirit and your great contributions to the success of the Festa. We look forward to working with all of you and sharing in the experience of Festa 2013. I am humbled and excited for the fundraising events and I would like to enthusiastically thank all of you and especially the community, for your hard work and also recognize your dedication to the Holy Spirit and to Queen St. Isabel. The generosity of this community is unbelievable. I am fortunate to have many of you as friends, I am blessed to have many of you as family, and I am proud to be among each of you in this unified Portuguese Community.
May the Holy Spirit be with you always,
UPCDES President 2013-2014
