Maltese Association Tea Party for Lourdes Patients at Fontanella

24/09/2013 

The Maltese Association started organising monthly afternoon informal tea-parties for our past Lourdes patients. This first get together was a great success. Over the years, the Maltese Association built a close friendship with many of the patients who have joined us over the years on pilgrimage to Lourdes. The relationship and special bond developed between the patients and our helpers over the weeks leading up to the pilgrimage and during the pilgrimage itself is a very special and profound one and therefore the Association felt the need to make every effort to keep this strong bond of friendship going throughout the years.

The selected group of patients had a wonderful time. Many happy memories were relived! The Fontanella tea rooms prepared a lovely spread of food with teas and coffees being served all through the afternoon. The patients enjoyed this reunion tremendously sitting in the beautiful terrace which overlooks the splendid panoramic views from Mdina!
