On Friday, the 5th of September, 2008, a special event will take place at Xaghra. At 9.00pm, a commemorative plaque will be blessed and inaugurated at the beginning of Racecourse Street besides the Xaghra Basilica.
This plaque will commemorate the event when the artistic statue of St. Mary venerated in the Gozo Cathedral was triumphally welcomed in the Xaghra Parish Church on the 29th of April, 2006, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its donation from the Leone Philarmonic Band of Victoria (the first Gozitan band founded in 1863) to the Gozo Cathedral.
Soon afterwards, a popular, triumphal and singular march will follow with the participation of the same band. The public is invited to attend.
