During a Mass at the Good Shepherd church, Victoria, for the Victoria and Xaghra Scout Groups, which was celebrated by Gozo Bishop Mario Grech, Group Leaders Lorrie Saliba and Lorraine Borg presented Mgr Grech with a hand-carved wooden cross.
The cross was a memento of the occasion of the birthday of their founder Lord Baden-Powell. Worldwide in nearly all Scout associations, Founders' Day is celebrated on February, the 22nd, the birthday of the founder of the Scout Movement, Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, known as B-P, who was born in Paddington, London on the 22nd of February 1857.
