Celebrations in Gozo will take place on Sunday, starting at 9.00am until 5.00pm, in the Villa Rundle Gardens, Victoria, where the Gozo Branch of the Foundation, have organised a marathon of activities by Gozitan talent, through the day for the whole family, under the direction of George Mizzi.

This special day was created by ‘Nanniet Malta’s’ Founder President. Philip M Chircop, who was inspired by Pope Francis’ speech to millions of Youths at World Youth Forum in Brazil (July 2013).
It will be celebrated on the second Sunday in October, as enacted by the Maltese Parliament, following a motion proposed by the Grandparents Malta Foundation, which was voted favourably and unanimously on the 12th of March, 2014.
The Gozo Branch of Nanniet Malta was inaugurated last November, during a Thanksgiving Mass, celebrated by the Bishop of Gozo, Mgr Mario Grech, at the Sannat Parish Church.
