To commemorate the 1750th Anniversary from the martyrdom of St Lawrence the patron saint of San Lawrenz, Maltpost p.l.c. issued a special official stamp.
Mr Anthony Grech, a member of the Gozo Philatelic Society, designed the stamp. An official from Maltapost was in the sacristy of the church on Sunday 10th August for all those who wished to acquire the stamp.
For this occasion, the Parish together with the Local Council and the Gozo Philatelic Society issued a commemorate post card. The post card was stamped and numbered in a limited edition of 600 copies, which were mostly sold on the same day it was stamped. There are still some postcards left and anyone who would like to acquire one can do so by contacting the Parish or the Local Council.
The picture of this postcard represents St Lawrence in his glory with the victorious palm and the gridiron in his hands. Chev Paul Camilleri Cauchi did the painting for postcard.
