Excerpt:

 

In Ponta Delgada, capital of the island of São Miguel in the Azores, walking along the Rua Madre de Deus one finds the charming garden which is the cemetery and church of St. George. It has been the Anglican Church and burial ground on this island for the last 150 years and therefore is closely linked to the local English community.

The church alas is no longer active as the Anglican Church. At the end of the 40s the last resident chaplain left and subsequently the official acts are very rare and usually presided over by the British Consul.
