The book Power of the Spirit – A Portuguese Journey of Building Churches and Faith in California, was presented to the Portuguese Community of St. Elizabeth Church in Sacramento on Sunday, January 20, 2013 after the 9 am and 10:30 am masses.
Thanks to the initiative and teamwork of members of the Portuguese Historical and Cultural Society, led by Marilia Wiget and Dolores Greenslate, Power of the Spirit was introduced to the local community and affectionately received by all. Following the masses, parishioners had the opportunity to purchase the book which was available for sale at the churche’s hall.
Henrique Dinis, representing Portuguese Heritage Publications of California, was on hand to present the book and assist with sales. Judging by the number of books sold, the event was a success.
Portuguese Heritage Publications of California, Inc. is a non-profit organization, created to research, preserve and disseminate vanishing memories and current relevant events about the Portuguese presence in California, for educational purposes.
