You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Pôe na virtude,
filha querida,
de tua vida
todo o primor.

Não dês à sorte
Que tanto ilude
Sem a virtude
Algum valor.

Tudo perece:
Murcha a beleza,
Foge a riqueza,
Esfria o amor;

Mas a virtude
Zomba da sorte,
Até da morte
Disfarça o horror.

Brilha a virtude
Na vida pura
Qual na espessura
Do lírio a cor.

Cultiva atenta,
Filha mimosa,
Sempre viçosa
Tão linda flor.
