DSC 0009 

Artist Hubert Saliba made a statue of St. John the Baptist. The statue was blessed by Archpriest Mons. Carmelo Mercieca on the 12th of June. For this occasion Banda Prekursur marched from Triq Bennejja (Barmil HOS) towards Pjazza San Gwann Battista. When the band and the new statue arrived at Pjazza San Gwann Battista, the Mayor of Xewkija Dr. Monica Vella was invited to do her speech for the occasion. 

Then Mr. Mario Borg read a poem he wrote for this occasion. Before the mass celebration, Archpriest Mons. Carmelo Mercieca blessed the statue before being shipped to Australia and later welcomed by our immigrants living there. The statue was sponsored by Mr. Charlie Refalo (Tal-Bahri).
