Christmas Tea Party at St Ursula Monastery for Past Lourdes Patients


On the 26th day of this month, more patients attended a tea party very kindly given by the cloistered sisters of our Order. The afternoon was well attended with everyone having a wonderful time in the parlour hall of the Monastery which was so attractively decorated for Christmas with life size nativity figures in a crib and Christmas lights blinking all around. The homemade refreshments were as always so delicious and in no time everything was devoured during this relaxing afternoon. Maltese Association President Philip Farrugia Randon surprised the crowd by sneaking away unnoticed. He then joined in again disguised as Father Christmas, this to the delight of all the patients, children and the nuns themselves who were so happy to see everyone so cheerful and happy! The afternoon came to an end with a beaming Father Christmas handing out small gifts to the patients. The nuns really went out of their way to give their best to this lovely festive reunion, which made it the more a cherished and memorable activity for one and all!
