CAK, (Centru Animazzjoni u Komunikazzjoni) a Franciscan Conventual Organisation, has opened a new branch in Gozo, which is situated in St. Francis Square, Victoria.
‘Emmaus’ is a religious souvenir bookshop run by the Conventual Franciscans of Malta, where its aim is to propagate the word of God and the catholic faith through books, DVDs and CDs, cards, icons, holy images, statues & figurines, rosaries, and even through mass wine, hosts and a large selection of liturgical vessels and paraments.
The Gozo branch was inaugurated by Mgr. Mario Grech, Bishop of Gozo. Present for the occasion were Fr Alfred Calleja Provincial, Fr Paul Darmanin Director of CAK, as well as various staff members. This Gozitan centre will greatly benefit the local churches in its animation and pastoral work.
“As the disciples of Emmaus heard Jesus talking to them and recognised him in the breaking of bread,” CAK said, “likewise one can meet God in this centre through culture and devotion.”
The Provincial of the Franciscan Friars Fr. Alfred Calleja made a donation to the Diocese of Gozo. The Bishop said that this grant will be forwarded to the Sacred Heart Seminary. While Fr Paul Darmanin, Director of the CAK presented an icon to Bishop Grech.
This centre will be opened daily from 8.00am to 12.00pm and from 4.00pm to 7.00pm.
