Archbishop Pawl Cremona O.P. recently visited the community the Sisters of Charity at id-Dar tal-Providenza as part of his Pastoral Visit in the Parish of Siġġiewi.
When Mgr Michael Azzopardi was preparing to open Villa Mgr Gonzi, the first home for persons with disability in Malta, he requested the Superior General of the Sisters of St Joan Antide Thouret in Rome to give her blessing to the Maltese Provincial to open a community of the Congregation at Id-Dar tal-Providenza. The Superior General accepted his petition and on January 12, 1968, a month before the first residents were welcomed at Villa Mgr Gonzi, a small community of the Sisters of St Joan Antide Thouret, known as The Sisters of Charity, was established at the Home in Siġġiewi. Since then, this community has supported residents with impressive dedication and care.
