This group was born in 2012 with 32 members. It is part of the parish community of S.Vicente in Abrantes, diocese of Portalegre/Castelo Branco - Portugal, more precisely in a rural area called Chainça that has the church of Nossa Senhora das Graças (Our Lady of Grace). The parish priest is in the city. The FMA came here in 2005 for pastoral service. In 2019, five more members joined and we were regularised with the request for aggregation after explicit authorisation from the Bishop and the Provincial. During the pandemic, we were in touch with one another over the telephone and the initiative called, ‘One for all, for Mary Help of Christians'. This group is the one that ensures assiduous prayer for the pastoral and catechetical care of this section of the People of God. 90% of those who attend the Rosary and the Sacrament of Reconciliation are ADMA members. We are trying to rejuvenate the Association, starting with catechesis to families who are more spiritually sensitive.
