H.L. Mgr. Charles J. Scicluna, Auxiliary Bishop and Vicar General of the Diocese of Malta was given a warm welcome by the residents and staff of id-Dar tal-Providenza. He found time to meet all the residents that were gathered in the St Paul’s Hall as well as their support workers and ability promoters. Fr Martin Micallef, Director of the Home, welcomed him on behalf of the residents and highlighted the work of id-Dar tal-Providenza, that presently houses ninety-eight residents whose age varies between ten and eighty years and over. It also offers respite services on a regular basis.
Bishop Scicluna said that id-Dar tal-Providenza is an institution very close to the heart of Christ. Anyone who visits the Home cannot but realize that it is indeed a true treasure of the Church. He appealed to the workers and volunteers to continuously use a heavy dose of the Gospel in their work.
During a tour of the Home Bishop Scicluna met the workers and volunteers of the various departments that cater for the wellbeing of the residents.
