About United Portuguese S.E.S. Inc

San Diego’s Portuguese community today is made up of immigrants from the Azores, Madeira, and mainland Portugal going back five generations in some cases.

We strive to honor those who have come before us, preserve our traditions and customs, and instill in our youth the spirit of devotion to the Espirito Santo, so our community will go forward in faith and tradition, generation after generation.
