Camellia Blessing Ceremony Returns

Today was the last day of the VI Mostra de Camélias dos Prazeres, which took place at Quinta Pedagogical in Prazares, Calheta, revitalizing a tradition that Father Roberto Aguiar says is “important.”

Yesterday saw the return of the popular Camellia contest, which was strongly supported by residents and visitors.  While today, parishioners arrived carrying Camellia blossoms, which were blessed during the 10:00 Mass.

This was followed by a prize-giving ceremony.
