The Church of Our Lady of Victories

February 1, 2016

The Church of Our Lady of Victories has its own website that can be found here http://www.ourladyofvictory.org.mt/index.html in which a wealth of information can be found about the church.

Some of the works that were undertaken during the restoration can be viewed here http://dinlarthelwa.org/?p=4947

And this is some news about the Thanksgiving Mass https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PE0ZXtRsS2k celebrated by His Grace the Archbishop of Malta on Wednesday 9th December, 2015. for the 50 years of Din l-Art Ħelwa’s work for the protection of Malta’s built, artistic and environmental heritage. The mass was concelebrated by Monsignor Victor Zammit McKeon and Monsignor Anton Galea while the Cappella Sanctae Catharinae choir accompanied the Holy Liturgy.

Thankful for the achievements of the organisation and its volunteers, His Grace prayed that the organization may continue in its efforts to protect our heritage and that Maltese people may care for our beautiful city of Valletta. To a gasp of surprise by the congregation, the Archbishop switched on the lights illuminating the Alessio Erardi Baroque ceiling the conservation of which has recently been completed by the Courtauld Institute of Art of London, with the generous sponsorship of the HSBC Malta Foundation.

Council Member Dr Stanley Farrugia Randon and Romina Farrugia Randon’s children, Eliża and Robert, presented the Offertory. These two children are Din l-Art Ħelwa’s youngest volunteers. They represent our organization’s hope for the future.

Conservation works are still on-going at Our lady of Victory Church and sponsorships are needed in order to complete the work required for the preservation of this, Valletta’s first building and oldest church.
