The Holy Ghost Discovers Florida

The short history of the Holy Spirit Feasts in Florida

is presented as

The Holy Ghost Discovers Florida

in a segment of the book

IV CONGRESSO INTERNACIONAL

SOBRE AS

FESTAS DO ESPÍRITO SANTO

by Tony Goulart

 

 

Extracts of the book "IV Congresso Internacional Sobre as Festas do Espirito Santo" are attached (click picture). 

The extracts include the work on "The Holy Ghost Discovers Florida", a list of all the works by other participants, including the work by Pedro Folgado on "Alenquer, “Terra do Espírito Santo”".  Browsing the index you will see representation from multiple global Portuguese communities where the Espírito Santo is celebrated, and numerous communities in the United States, with greater concentration in the Northeast and in California.

"The Holy Ghost discovers Florida" work begins with a brief description of the geography of Florida and the demographics of the Portuguese communities holding these Feasts.  Such background information was helpful for non-Floridians to contextualize the events.  The work elaborates on the Feasts in each community, with focus on the sponsoring community, P.A.S.A.

The author of "The Holy Ghost Discovers Florida", Angelina Phelan, thanks the coordinators of the IV International Conference on the Holy Spirit Feasts, Tony Goulart and Jose Rodrigues, for invitation to participate in the conference, sharing the history of the Feasts in Florida, and learning about the Feasts in numerous other locations of the globe.

The author also thanks P.A.S.A. for supporting participation in this Congress.

The work is dedicated to fellow Holy Spirit Committee members at P.A.S.A., and coordinators of Holy Spirit Feast in the Portuguese communities in Florida, who provided feedback and information assembled in this work.
