Familiarisation Lunch – Radisson Blu Hotel St Julians
Close to two hundred malades, friends and relatives of the Sick and volunteers attended the pre-Lourdes familiarization fund-raising lunch at the Radisson Blu Hotel St Julians. The atmosphere was convivial and jovial!
For some weeks, preparations have been on-going at Casa Lanfreducci, with the Pilgrimage now just two weeks away. It was time to gather together pilgrims, malades and helpers to meet up for the first time, when special ties start to form and new friendships start budding.
Before lunch Daniel de Petri Testaferrata, Maltese Association President and Pilgrimage Director greeted everyone and thanked them for attending and giving their support. The various Lourdes Pilgrimage team leaders were introduced to the pilgrims and patients present. All the participants were wished a successful, rewarding and spiritual experience in the forthcoming trip to Lourdes.
