Lent will soon be reaching its climax with the Holy Week celebrations, followed by the Resurrection on Easter Sunday, the biggest feast in the Church’s calendar.
But before we celebrate the rise of Jesus Christ from among the dead, we will also be commemorating the passion and the crucifixion of our Saviour.
For the third consecutive year, the Xewkija Local Council and Ghaqda Drammatika Xewkija are presenting Il-Fidwa.
Ghaqda Drammatika Xewkija in collaboration with the Xewkija Local Council, will be holding a re-enactment of the episode between the Last Supper and the capture and arrest of our Saviour Jesus Christ.
Everyone is cordially invited to join the Jewish Rabbis, the Apostles, Judas and Jesus Christ in the Gnien ta’ Blankas (better known as Gnien iz-Zebbug in Triq il-Kanal) for this re-enactment before the commencement of the Holy Week celebrations.
This year the re-enactment will be held on two nights, Tuesday and Wednesday, the 26th and 27th of March, starting at 8.30pm at Ta Blankas Olive Grove, Xewkija, leaving from Xewkija Square at 8.00pm.
