The Gozo Diocese Catechesis office organised a special prayer meeting for over 250 students who, in the coming days, will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. The meeting was held at Ta’ Pinu Sanctuary as part of the celebrations of the Marian Year and in honour of St Ġorġ Preca, founder of the Society of Christian Doctrine.

Gozo Bishop Mario Grech addressed the students. The Regina Angelorum Choir of Żebbuġ animated the celebration.

At the end of the celebration Fr Simon Cachia, who led the celebration and St Lawrence parish priest, Fr Charles Sultana, distributed key chains featuring Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu to those present. Food items were collected for Dar Arka.
