16TH. ANNIVERSARY OF THE MILLENNIUM CHAPEL

16TH. ANNIVERSARY OF THE MILLENNIUM CHAPEL

The 16th Anniversary Festivities of the Millennium Chapel have been this year another successful event with great participation from our community and others.  The Memorial for those dying in dramatic circumstances attracted a big number of relatives and friends of the victims, both for the Mass in Church and also around the Tree of Life and Peace in front of the Chapel.  Residents from San Blass Therapeutic Community of Caritas took an active part in the singing and liturgy of the Mass and one of the residents also gave his personal experience of quitting the addiction when present for an o.d. and demise of his own brother. 

In his brief homily, Fr. Hilary who celebrated the Mass mentioned two important points that on this occasion one needs to remember:

1. Parents, friends and staff of the victims we are remembering should not have any guilt feelings about their involvement in the dramatic loss of their beloved ones as they deem not to have done enough to stop it. It happened now and one has to believe that the beloved one is in the hands of God and out of mischief and pain.   

2.  Those present who are now fighting to rehabilitate themselves from the addiction must truly believe that they can make it. "We shall overcome” was the introductory hymn of the Mass and the Gospel, on the occasion of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception speaks “that for God nothing is impossible”. With the help of God in His presence in our life, as well as our steadfast commitment the road to a clean and straight life will not be far away. 

On the Day itself a thanksgiving Mass was celebrated in the morning remembering particularly past Welcomers and volunteers of the Chapel, like 

Marlene Randon, George and Nanette Samuel, John Garroni, Austin Pugliesevich, Lilian Dingli, Edwin Vassallo Grant. The Welcomers renewal of commitment was read by Margaret Agius and the Alice Horne Ensemble sang beautifully various parts of the Mass.  

In the evening the Portomaso Suite of the Hilton was once again the venue of a lavish evening dinner with the presence of 250 members of our community, friends and benefactors. Wonderful time with good food and exquisite wine.

A NEW DREAM - THE BIBLICAL MEDITATION GARDEN

The Millennium Chapel foundation has just submitted plans for the permit of the realisation of a new dream:  

The Biblical Meditation Garden which will be set on the roof of Wow.  

The garden will help those who want to meditate in a very secluded space.  

This is a follow up of the book by Peter Calamatta, ‘Maltese Plants in the Bible’ which is doing so well in the bookshops.  

The two levels of the garden will be named ‘CASICIACO’ and ‘HIPPO’ two gardens which played a very important part in the conversion of St. Augustine and in forming his first religious community.  

The plants in the garden will be the same mentioned in the book with the relevant biblical quotation to help the meditation of those present.  

Work on the garden will start as soon as the ‘Planning Authority’ permits are issued.

This Project funded by the MMDNA.
