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.2. 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.
