The book Power of the Spirit – A Portuguese Journey of Building Churches and Faith in California, was introduced to the community of Santa Clara, during Sunday March 3rd. 10:30 am mass, at St. Clare’s church.
St. Clare’s church is prominently featured in the book thanks to the excellent research and writing skills of Elizabeth Viano Bettencourt and Joao Arruda, for which we are thankful.
Henrique Dinis, representing Portuguese Heritage Publications of California, was on hand to present the book. St. Clare parishioners had opportunity to review the book after mass and many purchased it.
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.
