Annunciation feast to be celebrated at Hal Millieri chapel

Today the feast of the Annunciation is being celebrated at the medieval chapel of Hal Millieri, well known for its rare cycle of medieval frescoes.

The chapel, which is held in trust by heritage organisation Din l-Art Helwa, will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m., followed by the blessing of the churchyard.

There will be guided tours by volunteers, custodian Anthony Mangion and historian Stanley Farrugia Randon, at 11 and 3 p.m.

Admission to the chapel and participation in the guided tours is 50c, except for Mass. Donations are badly needed and will assist Din l-Art Helwa to begin restoration on the adjoining 17th century chapel of St John the Evangelist. This chapel lies only a few metres away from its pristine neighbour and is badly in need of attention. Din l-Art Helwa is asking for support, so the organisation can extend its assistance to this lesser known testimony of religious heritage.

The chapel of Hal Millieri is best reached via Zurrieq through Mqabba Road by taking the first right turn, which is signposted 'Hal Millieri', after passing the fountain roundabout at the entrance to Zurrieq.
