Malta Day celebrations

Fiorella has sent me some photos of the Malta Day celebrations last Saturday. They were celebrating Our Lady of Victories, and the ending of the Great Siege and the wartime Siege of Malta. Here is the statue of Our Lady which was carried in procession.

During the day, there was a presentation of Fiorella's latest novel "Fr William's Daughter" by His Excellency Michael Refalo the High Commissioner.
