The A Boa Nova Community was founded in 1989 by 4 couples from the Ex-Portuguese Colonies, mainly Mozambique. The couples all belonged to the same Catholic Couples chairing Group and all felt they needed something more. A way of life that involved in living a more committed day to day way of life. Our community didn’t start like many other communities with youth groups or young couples etc. It started with four retired couples who belonged to a movement for Couples “ Our Lady of Charity” in their sixties and their search for something more than just their sharing of faith.
