They are Franciscans.

They are from a community called the Toca de Assis, a Brazilian community that helps the poor. :slight_smile:

If you look up information on them, you might find it written in Portuguese like I did. My Portuguese isn’t too good, so I had to translate it to English, but It is interesting to read about their community, and what they do.

It’s a lovely video. Thanks for sharing.

One of my favorites. :slight_smile: Here it is with only the lyrics of the Adoro Te Devote, in both Latin and Portuguese.
