A commemorative event took place at the monument in honour of Mgr. Luigi Vella, in Savina Square, Victoria, to mark the 90th anniversary since his death.
Monsignor Luigi Vella was appointed as the first rector of Savina Church and was the one who worked to rebuild the church and open it for perpetual adoration.
He was later appointed as Archdeacon of the Gozo Cathedral. He was also known as a philanthropic writer.
The ceremony was attended by the Minister for Gozo Dr Justyne Caruana and included speeches and the laying of wreaths at the base of the monument.
