4. The Pope has inaugurated a year dedicated to St Aloysius Gonzaga, patron of young people and AIDS victims, on the 450 anniversary of his death. In Malta there are 3 churches with a connection to this saint: Sarria in Floriana, the chapel of St Aloysius College and the Parish Church of Lija. There is further information on the notice boards regarding activities being held in these churches.
5. Last Monday, the first meeting was held for young people from 18 years upwards, discuss various subjects linked to the Christian faith, to explore together the Church’s teaching or queries that one may have about our faith. The objective is, therefore, not the usual type of youth group but rather time for these young people to learn more about faith and to support each other in living the Christian life. Those interested may speak to Fr James after mass.
6. On Saturday, 13th October, the monthly prayer meeting for Sanctification of the Clergy, will be held at the Seminary, Tal-Virtu, Rabat. It starts at 9.00 pm with Mass and continues with adoration up to 11.00 pm.
