Events: January to March 2019
  Funds for the Restoration of the Belfries
From the beginning of this year, Archpriest Canon John Sultana launched the project of funds for the Restoration of the Church belfries. For this reason, a daily collection during daily Mass has been introduced. During the weekend Masses, the Parish priest is addressing the congregation practically during every Mass in order to launch the project and encourage both the locals and the visitors to help out in the project of the greatest importance. The project is in fact of an urgent nature. Parishioners have welcomed the project since the belfries are in dire need of extensive restoration.
