During the past 25 years over 35 foreign adults have been baptised or accepted in the Catholic Faith at the Millennium Chapel. The Chapel has always been open to all faiths, gender and people of different races and was the first to embrace gay and transgender people when Maltese society was still unprepared to accept them. Meetings were held by them and their relatives here on various occasions.

After the opening of the Chapel the need for more space was immediately felt and in 2002 work on WOW (Wishing Others Well) started and a Foundation mainly formed of lay people was set up. The new premises of WOW were inaugurated in 2004 with the Auditorium , Counselling Rooms, spacious multi purpose room and games room for the use of Schools and NGOs. WOW has been used by various NGOs , received hundreds of students from all government and public schools in Malta, and has seen thousands of clients approaching our professional counsellors.

Following the publication of Peter Calamatta’s book Maltese Plants in the Bible, the creation of a meditation garden with plants that grow in the Holy Land and Malta accompanied by the scripture quotation of the same plants was opened on the 27th August 2018 and is very much in use especially during the summer months. The latest major events have been the opening of the Love Kitchen for homeless and needy people and the launching of a Mega screen on the precincts of the Chapel that will be transmitting positive messages to all passersby and traffic commuters.

All this will not have been possible without the voluntary work of so many Welcomers and many benefactors who believed in our mission and to them all goes our heartfelt thanks.
