Christmas Eve Mass

24/12/2015 


 

Members and Volunteers of the Order and their families and friends gathered in Our Lady of Victory Church to celebrate Christmas Eve Mass.

The Rev. Mgr Paul Vella celebrated Mass, and the Rev. Dun Karm Busuttil concelebrated.

Kevin Dingli and Paul and Andrew Sultana lead the congregation in the singing of carols by providing the music which enhanced the celebration of Holy Mass and also inspired the spirit of Christmas throughout the function.

The traditional sermon this year was delightfully and ably recited by the young Sophie Gera de Petri Testaferrata who captured the hearts of all those present. Whilst the readings and bidding prayers were read by Karen Miller and Helene Zammit respectively. President Daniel de Petri Testaferrata read the Prayer of the Order at the end of Holy Mass.

After Mass, members and their families proceeded to Casa Lanfreducci where they were able to exchange greetings in a convivial Christmas atmosphere whilst tucking into the lovely spread of food and mulled wine organized by the President’s wife Enyd. The enjoyable evening came to a close at 11.00 p.m.
