WELCOME TO THE CAMPAIGN

Clareia Meu Céu do Mar

For 39 years the Church of Céu do Mar has given proof to the vision of Padrinho Sebastiao. With its community of brother and sisterhood it has anchored its physical and spiritual presence onto the side of Sao Conrado mountain, serving the city of Rio de Janeiro and beyond.

Born in 1982, it has grown, weathering many storms, reaching great heights – a living embodiment of love and friendship that has inspired many other communities and Churches all over the world – and now this great ship is in need of renewal and repair.

With the help of the greater irmandade, the goal is to raise funds to fortify the Church and lay a sound structural foundation that will serve the years to come.

Archived on this site you will find a rich collection of stories, videos, photos and testimonials that capture and share some of Ceu do Mar’s history, development and great arc of expansion. You will also find 3D architectural images and a virtual tour of the project.

Madrinha Rita, Madrinha Nonata and Padrinho Paulo would like to thank, on behalf of Céu do Mar, all who can join hands in this effort. May the Light that came from the Forest continue to shine on the shores of Rio de Janeiro for many generations to come and may Céu do Mar continue to serve as a guiding light for irmandade across the globe.

I sing in the Sun
I sing in the Moon
I sing on the Earth
I sing here on this ground

Current Status of the Church Structure

We took advantage of the break from the spiritual works at Ceu do Mar to carry out a technical inspection of the church. The report showed an immediate need for structural renovation of its steel structures and foundation, as well as a need to redo the roof , masonry and the electrical. We will have an explanatory video soon. See also the photos to learn more about the situation.
