75th anniversary commemoration of San Lawrenz WWII bombing victimsThe 75th anniversary is to be commemorated of the tragic event that took place on an August night, in which four people died, when the village of San Lawrenz came under attack during WWII.

During the night of the 5th and 6th of August, a group of ‘Lawrenzjani,’ a mother, two of her daughters and a relative, on their way to take shelter from enemy attacks, were hit in a bombing raid by a German war plane. This was to be their last journey; they never made it to the nearby shelter.

San Lawrenz Local Council ,together with the Parish, are organising this important anniversary with a Mass for peace to be celebrated in repose of these brethren.

This memorial will be held on Thursday, the 3rd of August at 7.00pm in Rokon Street, the same place where this sad event happened 75 years ago.

“Let us unite to pray together for peace in the world.” Those who wish to bring flowers or candles as a sign of respect, are free to do so.

Transportation will be provided to Rokon Street and back from the San Lawrenz main square.
