9:00 AM Festival: Portuguese Festa The Festa do Espírito Santo is an ethnic religious celebration dating back to the time when the first families settled here in 1884, and was formally organized in 1910.

Today, as it has been since 1922, the Chapel next door to the UPSES Hall is used to house the Crown of the Holy Spirit during the Festa. On Pentecost Sunday devotees of the Holy Spirit visit the Chapel to pray and offer a donation of monies or Portuguese sweet breads (which are sold to raise funds) to assure the continuation of this unique ethnic and religious celebration.

Since 1922, our Portuguese colony here has made a procession (now a full parade) from our UPSES Hall chapel (i.e. "capela") with our annual Queen Saint Isabel personage holding our community's Crown of the Holy Spirit up to St. Agnes Church for a celebratory Mass followed by another procession/parade back down to our Hall afterward. Our chapel was built especially to hold our Holy Spirit Crowns during the Festa do Espírito Santo.

4:00 PM Film & Music: When Voices Meet Join Hands of Peace in partnership with Sister Faiths of North County as they screen When Voices Meet and enjoy a musical performance and Q&A with Producer/Director Sharon Katz. This film is an award-winning documentary that is set during apartheid in South Africa, which resulted in political violence and tore the country apart. When Voices Meet (a 500-voice multicultural choir and band held a concert at Durban City Hall in 1993) formed, their music touched the hearts of a country divided by civil war. With the joining force of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, those courageous performers took their message to the rest of the country to break down the barriers apartheid had created. Despite the threat of violence, they knew there was no turning back. When Voices Meet promoted a peaceful transition to a democracy and became Nelson Mandela's face of a new nation. The film highlights the trials, tribulations and triumphs of the musicians and choir members, who performed together for seven years. It is an inspiring story filled with determination and hope.
