To mark the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of Frenc tal-Gharb, the Gharb Local Council of Gharb will be holding a commemoration next to the monument dedicated to Francis Xavier Mercieca (1892-1967) better known as Frenc tal-Gharb.
He helped hundreds of persons overcome difficult times and was instrumental in generating devotion towards Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu. He did not do this for personal gain, but simply as an expression of his devotion towards Our Lady of ta’ Pinu.
The commemoration event will be held this coming Friday, the 19th of May, at 7.30pm in Bishop Cauchi Square, Gharb.
On the same day at 7.00pm, the Parish Community will be holding a thanksgiving Mass at the Visitation of Our Lady Basilica Gharb.
There will also be an Open Day at Frenc tal-Gharb house from 9.00am to 9.00pm.
