Portuguese religious festival takes to Bradford streets

Approximately 400 people attended the banquet that followed the parade.

The Festival of the Holy Trinity Santissima Trinidad parade was held Sunday around Holy Martyrs of Japan Parish, followed by a banquet at the Portuguese Cultural Centre of Bradford.

The festival is one of three celebrating Portuguese roots in Bradford, transplanted from the Azores.

The religious festival is a time of sharing and generosity, thanks and praise to God, and a time to say thank you for past grace and ask for God’s blessings.

Approximately 400 people attended the banquet that followed the parade, hosted by Mordomos Mario Gomes and Lusia Gomes.

The next festival is Divino Espirito Santo — The Divine Holy Spirit — which will take place June 9 and 10.
