A permanent meeting place for neighbors;

And a place to attend Sunday Mass and celebrate the sacraments.

to receive the sacraments (Marriages, First Communions, Confessions, ...);

to attend Sunday Mass;

to celebrate their Patron, ... and even they took place and various neighborhood assemblies convivial meetings at different times of the year.

The festivity that match the feast of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, on 08 September each year.

The day of the birth of baby Jesus, on December 25.

And on New Year, on January 01.
