On Thursday, 2nd January, feast of St Basil (Latin calendar), Fr George Mifsud, the Parish Priest of the Greek-Catholic Parish of Our Lady of Damascus (Valletta), has celebrated the Holy Liturgy of St Basil at the saint’s medieval chapel at Mqabba. This chapel was built towards the end of the 15th century and served as Mqabba’s first parish church. The Roman Cathiolic congregation greatly appreciated this liturgical event which came about on the initiative of Rev. George Schembri (Mqabba Parish). The photos in this album were taken at the beginning of the liturgical event. By the time this event came to an end, the chapel was packed with the faithful who expressed their admiration for the beauty of the oriental liturgical rite.
