Portuguese Celebrate The Crowning Tradition

Father James Achadinha and Mr. and Mrs. Antonino Pereira invite all of Gloucester to celebrate at a Mass at Our Lady of Good Voyage on Sunday June 15th at 10:00 AM.

This week is full of Prayer, Mass and Rosary at the D.E.S. Portuguese Club on Prospect Street.

The history of the crowning dates to the 14th century, when Queen Isabella of Portugal instituted the annual practice of crowning one of her subjects as imperator, or king, for a day. Gloucester has been celebrating this tradition since 1902.
