On Sunday 27th November, the Local Council commemorated the second day of Jum ix-Xewkija through a variety of events which kicked off with the hearing of the liturgy with the presence of Malta's President H.O. Ms. Marie Louise Coleiro Preca. At the end of the liturgy various local organizations presented their donations in aid of Istrina 2016. Also the new organ was blessed Gozo Bishop Mgr. Mario Grech in the presence of local Archpriest Mgr. Daniel Xerri and Honorary Archpriest Mgr. Carmelo Mercieca.
Following the mass, representatives of the Local Council laid flowers on the monument situated in Mgarr Road commemorating war victims. Eventually later in the morning, Xewkija Local Council in collaboration with Xewkija Tigers Youth Nursery organized the annual Jum ix-Xewkija Festival with several local teams (Gozitan and Maltese) participating in this event.
