Sadly the Maltese Herald, the only weekly Maltese newspaper, has been printed for the last time today, the 30th of April, due to lack of support by way of advertisments.

Members of the Maltese community in Australia have sent many letters of support to the newspaper and it will be missed by many

This week’s articles in the PDF download are:

1. April 13 was a red-letter day for the Congregation of the Franciscan Sisters of the Heart of Jesus. The Holy See acknowledged the long-awaited news that the heroic virtues of their foundress, Mother Margerita De Brincat, had been recognised.

Nine Cardinals who had been given the task of studying her life, writings and what witnesses – both nuns and lay people – had to say about her in the diocesan process, had given a positive vote.

This is another step forward towards the canonisation of this humble nun from Kercem (1862-1952), who, as a result of the great trust she had in God, succeeded in making Him known and loved in various places throughout the world.

Today, her spiritual daughters continue what she had begun in various houses in Malta, Italy, London, Corfu, Jerusalem, Brazil, Pakistan, the Philippines, Ethiopia and Kenya.The final edition of the Maltese Herald printed in Australia2. Victoria Primary School celebrated World Book Day on Tuesday April 23, with a series of activities to increase the love of books in children. The schoolchildren were actively engaged in storytelling sessions, group and shared reading, a treasure hunt and a puppet theatre.

The Schoolchildren Council also launched the book Il-Villagg ta’ Serpentinu by Victoria schoolteacher Christabel Attard. The programme included music, dance and interviews with the author, the illustrator and the publisher.

Gozo College principal Anita Sciberras delivered a short message to parents and children.

      Hi all, kienet sorpriza kbira u dizzapunt kbir li l-Maltese herald giet fi tmiem taghha. Minn hawn insellem lis-Sur Lino vella li ta Kontribut kbir ghal din il-gazzetta. Din il-gazzetta kienet link kbira bejn Malta u l-Awstralja. Jiena ghamilt zmien nahdem ma din il-gazzetta meta kont noqghod L-Awstralja u naf x’kienet tfisser ghal Maltin Awstraljani. Din hi telfa kbira ghalihom u ma naf’x kif thalliet tmut hekk. Meta kont nahdem ma Lino Vella kont nara kemm il-Maltin u l-Ghawdxin kienu ifittxuha biex jkunu jafu dwar Malta kemm ghall-ahbarijiet u kif ukoll biex jitghallmu dwar il-kultura Maltija. Din il-gazzetta kienet taghti identita lil Maltin awstraljani go l-Awstralja, Minn hawn insellem lill-Huti l-maltin u Ghawdxin Awstraljani u jiddispjacini ghal din it-telfa tragika.
      Ma nafx forsi jekk tistax tibda tohrog mill-konslu Malti go l-Awstrlaja biex din il-holqa bejn Malta u l-Awstralja ma tintilifx.
      Regards
      Joe Louis
