Porto Alegre, Brazil (Wednesday, 11-04-2015, Gaudium Press) The Catholic Archdiocese of Porto Alegre has organized an exhibit on the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Salgado Filho International Airport, which will run till November 13, 2015.
The exhibit, called “Exposição de Telas de Nossa Senhora” is located on the third floor of the airport, next to the food court and can be visited every day till midnight. It is being coordinated by Iranelci Padilha and it has the support of the Department of Communications of the Archdiocese of Porto Alegre (Pascom).
This is not the first time that this type of exhibit takes place at the International Airport of Porto Alegre. In August 2011, a similar event took place which aims to portray the popular Marian devotion as seen by the local culture. It was followed by other exhibits in other venues as in the Legislative Assembly, in the “Carlos Nobre” museum of Guaiba, in the International Festival of Tourism in Gramado, in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Porto Alegre, as well as in several parishes of the Archdiocese of Porto Alegre and the diocese of Novo Hamburgo.
Due to the success of this events a second edition of the exhibit was presented at the Salgado Filho International Airport in 2012. (LMI)
