easter sundayThe Church today, festively announces the resurrection of Christ! Church bells together with beautifully floral settings contribute in enriching today’s solemnity. SCJ animate the 11am mass at the Basilica of Xagħra. It was officiated by Mgr. Carmelo Refalo, Archpriest.

Good Friday is a day of great solemnity for those who believe in Jesus Christ.  On what the Jews considered to be the ninth hour of the day, which is the equivalent of three in the afternoon, Jesus, after having bore the Passion and nailed to the Cross, gave his life so that humanity could live forever.  It was through his death on the Cross that Christ save the world.  This is the reason why on Good Friday, Mass does not take place but instead, believers are invited to kiss the Cross which is the sign of our salvation.
