At present our Carmelite Community is hosting two families with a young girl and an infant and another four men, of different nationalities. Along this week by the altar there will be baskets for those who wish to donate preserved food for these families.
5. We are happy to announce that the Congregation of Saints has approved the Diocesan Inquiry which was held in Malta about the saintly life and the graces acquired throught the intercession of Fr. Avertan Fenech, a Carmelite Friar.
Reviewing all the matrial they were given, the Congregation acknowledges that there is ample evidence to say that Fr. Avertan lived a virtuos and exemplary life and his fame is one of a saintly person. Let us pray for the cause of Fr. Avertan that it could make a valid progress.
