Dia das Comunidades Eclesiais de Base (CEB)
(Fundamental Church Communities). These groups, consist of 20 to 100 persons, were founded as a result of the Second Vatican Conciliate at the end of the Sixties. Their objective was to read and interpret the bible together.

Their influence was considerably: they contributed significantly in the resistance against the military dictatorship.

Dia Nacional da Congregação Mariana
(Congregation of Our Lady). This day is held on the third Sunday in May. The congregation was founded in 1563 by Belgian Jesuit Jean Leunis. Initially, they were set up for schoolboys, eventually adults were allowed, and groups were created for particular groups in society, such as priests, married, unmarried, clerks, soldiers, noblemen, etcetera. In 1748 the Congregration was awarded the so-called ‘Golden Bull’ by Pope Benedict XIV. The congegrations existed in colonial Brazil, but vanished with the expulsion of Jesuits from Brazil in 1759. In 1870, the first congregation was founded in Itu (SP). There exist a hymn of the Brazilian Congregation:
Do Prata ao Amazonas, do mar às cordilheiras, cerremos as fileiras, soldados do Senhor! O nome teu, Maria, ó Virgem Soberana, nos une e nos irmana, nos dá força e valor, nos dá força e valor!
A Igreja eterna no tempo avança sob a bandeira da esperança! Nós te saudamos, Virgem Maria, com entusiasmo e alegria. Jesus é o centro de toda a História, nós lhe rendemos louvor e glória, e te juramos, ó Mãe querida, fidelidade por toda a vida!
O Mundo está sedento de paz e unidade; amor, fraternidade, queremos difundir! Nós somos missionários, por Cristo convidados! Vamos pois, Congregados, seu Reino construir, seu Reino construir!

Dia da Ilegalidade do Tráfico de Escravos (Slave trade declared illegal).
It was the United Kingdom that pressured Portugal and its colony Brazil to make an end to slave trade and slavery. Initially, Portugal ended slave trade north of the equator only. South of the equator, slave trade continued. Brazil became independent in 1822. In exchange for recognition of its independence by the United Kingdom, Brazil promised to end slave trade in 1830. Despite this promise, slaves were still transported to Brazil, which made the United Kingdom decide to consider these transport ships as pirate ships and to attack them. The conflict escalated in 1850 with setting fire to slave ships and attacking Brazilian fortresses. These attacks forced Brazil to ratify the law that ended slave trade.
