Lent is a special time for the preaching of the Word and the St George’s Parish has laid out a programme of ministry that runs through the current liturgical season.

Fr Gabriel Gauci gave the Lenten talks to all last week.  These started on Monday, February 19, and were held at St George’s Basilica.

From tomorrow, catechists are going to give four Lenten talks to the children of the parish and these will take place till Thursday 29 February.  These talks will be held in the Parish Hall.

Rev. Krystof Buttigieg gives the general Lenten sermons to parents and families in the Basilica, also from tomorrow till Thursday, 29 February.

  • Via Crucis after the 8.00am & 9.00am Masses.
  • Morning Prayers in the 9.00am Mass.

Every Friday:
