Carolina Cauchi Death Centinary’s Celebration at St. Catherine’s Chapel Attard.
Apart from the celebration we held in Gozo, we had a something similar at St. Catherine’s Chapel, Attard on the 17th August. The Archbishop Mgr. Paul Cremona O.P. led the Eucharistic celebration together with 17 concelebrants. Most of these were Dominican Fathers. Fr Norbert Bonavia MSSP. assisted the Archbishop throughout the ceremony. Mro. Fr Salv Galea O.P. led the ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ choir during the celebration and created a very pleasant atmosphere.
We issued a booklet, which was used both in Gozo and Malta, thus everybody could follow exactly what was going on. At the beginning of the ceremony, the Superior General, Mother Carmelita Borg O.P. gave an interesting talk about Carolina Cauchi. In his homely, the Archbishop linked Carolina Cauchi to our Holy Father St. Dominic. Both of them went through various hardships in accomplishing God’s plan.
The Council of the Lay Dominicans was present for this occasion. They came to share the joy of this unique manifestation. There were other people present and the chapel was full to capacity. We all rendered thanks to God for all the graces and blessings He bestowed on our Congregation through Carolina Cauchi.
This occasion came to an end by means of a fraternal gathering during which a small token was given to those present.
