The Director of Id-Dar tal-Providenza, Fr Martin Micallef, was given the Premju Ġieħ Ħal Luqa during a ceremony held on Friday 9th September, 2002 in St Andrew’s Square in front of the Luqa Parish Church.
Fr Martin thanked the Luqa Mayor, Mr John Schembri, the Vice Mayor and all the Councillors for honouring him with the Ġieħ Ħal Luqa Award in the presence of the Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government, the Hon. Alison Zerafa Civelli.
Fr Martin said he wanted to dedicate this Award to all the Luqa residents who have, in their own ways, shaped him in the values that he cherishes as well as for ingraining in him a special love towards Luqa, his native village. He also thanked all those who congratulated him personally and on social media.
