Holy Spirit Feast
15th May

The feast of the Pentecost is celebrated at the Holy Spirit church at Margao, fifty days after Easter. After the holy mass, a procession takes place consisting of a priest, laity and members of confraternity wearing red ceremonial robes. Since the feast is celebrated just before the monsoons, a large fair gathers around the church square offering provisions for the long months of the rainy season. This in turn attracts large crowds from Margao and surrounding villages of Salcete to stock up their larders.
