Christ the King celebration for schoolchildren

On the occasion of the Feast of Christ the King, the Catechetical Office of the Gozo Diocese organised a celebration for schoolchildren at Nadur parish church. Around 350 students, aged between 8 and 10, participated in the celebration which focused on the martyrdom of St Tarcisius, who was accosted and beaten to death while carrying the Eucharist to some Christians in prison, the gift of the Eucharist and the value of charity. Bro. Etienne Gilson, OFM Conv. and Nadur archpriest Jimmy Xerri led the celebration. Gozo Bishop Mario Grech addressed the students, who donated canned food to Caritas on the occasion of the World Day of the Poor.
