The priest celebrated the first mass in Boivão, when he even made a small gaffe when changing the name of Valença for Caminha, without disturbing the assistance at all.
Father Ricardo Esteves was parish priest in the parishes of S. Martinho de Lanhelas, Sta. Eulália de Vilar de Mouros and S. Pedro de Seixas for four years, and despite a petition with about 1900 signatures asking for permanence, the reverend was transferred to the parishes of Divino Salvador de Gandra, Sta Marinha de Taião, S. Félix de Sanfins, S. Tiago de Boivão and S. Cristóvão de Gondomil, in the archbishop of Valença.
The parish priest, famous for enjoying riding a motorcycle, going to the gym and going out at night, was eager to start new projects and said that he brings the old parishes to heart.
During the Boivão Mass, the parish priest assured that “I am not here to change anything, I am here to give a little better and to help you in whatever is necessary”.Father Ricardo Esteves was replaced by Father Manuel Joaquim Rodrigues Pinto in Caminha.
