A delegation from the JP2 Foundation recently made a cordial visit to His Excellency Archbishop Monsignor Alessandro D’errico, Apostolic Nuncio to Malta at the Apostolic Nunciature in Tal-Virtu, Rabat, Malta.
Members of the delegation were, President of the JP2 Foundation Commander Carmel Zammit EOHSJ, the Chaplin, Reverend Cannon Chevalier Antoine Borg EOHSJ, and Mr Eric Joseph Grech the JP2 Foundation Public Relations Officer.
During their introduction with the Apostolic Nuncio, they explained the aim of the Foundation, as well as its role in connection with Saint John Paul II.
The JP2 delegation said that apart from the fact that the Foundation keeps alive the name of Pope John Paul II, its primary aim is to promote “culture” through collaboration in projects and initiatives, which bring together people of different identities and diverse cultures to create an environment for a common denominator.
“These initiatives include, but are by no means limited to, the cultural field. This year, the JP2 Foundation has so far organised twenty events, fifteen of which with international participation and five locally based,” it said.
The main subject of the agenda for the meeting was the commemoration of the first centenary from the birth of Karol Józef Wojtyla and the 30th anniversary as the first Pontiff to visit the the Maltese Islands, both dates coinciding in May 2020.
The delegation explained that at the moment, the Foundation is preparing a proposed programme which will cover a period of 24 months, starting in May 2019 to May 2021.
His Excellency was accompanied by his private secretary Reverend Monsignor Francisco Javuer Diaz Tenza.
