EVENTS: Remembrance Day


HPIM8816Wirt iż-Żejtun will be commemorating Remembrance Day on Sunday the 10th November.  During this day we will remember all those who in the past contributed in one way or another to the historical and cultural achievements of our town.

Mass will be celebrated at the Zejtun Parish Church at 8:00am followed by a corteo with the participation of the Zejtun Boys Scouts and Girl Guides together with representatives from the local organisations.  This year we will be dedicating this event to Mikiel Cachia and therefore we will be ending the  corteo at the Ġnien tal-Kmandant, which was designed by Cachia himself.

Everyone is invited for this event.
