“Hæc dies quam fecit Dominus! This is the day the Lord has made!”. We are still rejoicing with the light of Easter Sunday, the feast of feasts, the day of unequalled joy, the day on which Christ is risen.

Fr Joseph Curmi is our new Archpriest
A Press Release from the Gozo Curia issued a few minutes ago has announced that His Lordship Mgr Mario Grech, Bishop of Gozo, has appointed Fr Joseph Curmi, from Xagħra, as the new Archpriest of St George’s Basilica, succeeding Mgr Pawlu Cardona, who has now been appointed as Episcopal Vicar for the Clergy, a new post in the diocesan hierarchy.
It has been more than three weeksnow that themissionary group from our parish has arrived from Guatemala. It was been a great experience once again for those who, with Fr Anton Grech, have gone through a very deep and profound experience. Guatemala has been described by many of the volunteers as a land of hope. In fact, a land of hope, but which also implies a land which is still developing and where disparities are still evident.
