Welcome to this website! 'Servos do Amor' is the name of an ethnographic film project consisting of a film, website and academic report. It is also the name of the group of people that this project is about: Brazilian migrants living in Amsterdam who organise weekly prayer meetings in the style of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal.


On this website you will find the ten-minute film that we shot during one of Servos do Amor's meetings, as well as background information on the global Roman Catholic Church and the local Portuguese-speaking church in Amsterdam. Furthermore, you will find lyrics and information about the project and about us.
