Church Of Mae De Deus

Its overwhelming beauty is because of its doom shape. The Church is perfect example of Gothic architecture. There are 2 lofty bells inside the Church tower. The unique church houses a miraculous statue of Mae De Deus (Mother of God), which was brought from the convent of Mae De Deus at Old Goa.

Located on the bus route to Calangute from Mapusa, the church is an excellent example of Gothic architecture.
The feast of 'Mae de Deus' Church was celebrated in all it's splendor on 7th May 2000.

This beautiful Gothic structure has been amidst us for the past 127 years. The foundation stone was laid on 7.2.1867. The chapel was raised to the status of parochial Church in 1873. The Church was blessed on 26.11.1873. The statue of Mother of God which is venerated at the side altar was brought from the extinct Convent of Mother of God from Daugim, Old Goa.

The feast is celebrated on the first Sunday of May every year in all it's grandeur with a vibrant choir and ends with a procession in veneration of Our Lady invoking her blessings on the village of Saligão. There is the 'Fair' as usual with sweets, toys and refreshments throughout the day.
