Our Lady of the Rosary Church in the Historic Centre of Porto Alegre - Rio Grande do Sul - Brazil
Brazil
In 2002, the parish priest Fr Joseph Remídio Bohn led the church works, electrical installations and sound, plus the floor, refurbished and restored the paintings and decorations inside, and the temple reopened on October 7, 2003, when the Archbishop Archbishop Grings Dadeus granted the title of the church sanctuary. Aside from its historical importance from the beginning, the Church of the Rosary has an intense life of its own and still plays an important role in the religious life of the city, being the starting point for the traditional procession of Our Lady of Navigators, which brings together thousands of people every year.

Remídio José Bohn liderou as obras da igreja; as instalações elétricas e sonoras, mais o piso, foram reformados, e restauradas as pinturas e decorações internas, sendo o templo reinaugurado em 7 de outubro de 2003, quando o Arcebispo Metropolitano Dom Dadeus Grings concedeu à igreja o título de Santuário. À parte sua importância histórica desde a origem, a Igreja do Rosário tem uma intensa vida própria e ainda desempenha um papel importante na vida religiosa da cidade, sendo o ponto de partida para a tradicional procissão de Nossa Senhora de Navegantes, que reúne milhares de pessoas todos os anos.(Wikipédia)
