Villa Papa Luciani

Villa Papa Luciani was inaugurated on the 8th of September 1987 just four months after the demise of the founder Mgr Azzopardi. It was named after the late Pope John Paul I known also as Papa Luciani or the smiling Pope. It houses two distinct flats: San Martin and San Ġorġ Preca.

Villa Papa Giovanni

1971 saw the start of the building of a second Villa designed to accommodate fifty residents. This home, called Villa Papa Giovanni, was inaugurated by H.G. Mons Michael Gonzi Archbishop of Malta on 19 March 1974. The Villa included a chapel, a hydro theraputic pool, two courtyards, a gymnasium, activity rooms and administrative offices. The building was designed by architect Mr Aurthur Cutugno. To-day it houses four distinct flats: Anġlu Kustodju, Warda, Sant’Antnin and Livia. Unfortunately the hydro theraputic pool is no longer functioning however, the present administration is working to re build it.

In 2002 on the left hand side of the chapel a Museum in commemoration of Mgr Azzopardi was inuagurated by H.G. Mgr Joseph Mercieca Archsbishop of Malta.

The chapel was refurbished in 2005 under the supervison of Architect Dr Conrad Thake. Stained glass designed by artist Luciano Micallef replaced the old chapel window while a crucifix by sculpter Mr Anton Agius adornes the chapel. In 2012 the window panes of the chapel doors were replaced by four fused glass window panes designed and manufactured also by Mr Luciano Micallef.

Villa Mons Gonzi

On the land where till 1962 stood a navy rest camp in the limits of Siggiewi which was later rented by the Govenment to the Malta Catholic Action Movement Mgr Azzopardi built the first residence for persons with disabilities in Malta. The residence which started being built in December 1965 was named Villa Monsinjur Gonzi for the then Archbishop of Malta who gave the sum of LM3,000 (around €7000) which were given to him on the occassion of his 80th birthday.

The building includes a convent for the nuns from the Congregation of Sisters of St Jeanne Antide Thouret who took up residence on the 12th January 1968. They were Id-Dar tal-Providenza’s first support workers aided by volunteers and subsequently by employed lay personnel. The nuns have given full time service since then.

In February 1968 Villa Monsignor Gonzi opened its doors to welcome Id-Dar tal-Providenza’s first group of residents.

In the 80’s this residence was demolished and rebuilt as it stands today and it houses three distinct flats: San Ġużepp, Jasmine and San Nikola.

From 2013 it also houses a multi sensory room.
