St. Peter’s Convent situated in the heart of Lija village is the first convent which the Congregation opened in Malta. In a small house attached to the convent today the sisters care for the elderly. Attached to the convent is a small public chapel where a number of parishioners join the sisters everyday for the celebration of the Eucharist.
Here we also find the Formation House where young women who aspire to become the future sisters in the Congregation, receive their formation. It is open also to those young women who wish to have a live-in experience of the religious life. If you are a young woaman and wish to know more about the religious life you are invited to attend the meetings which are held periodically here.
The sisters living at this convent carry out various other works like the teaching of catechism; some are special ministers of the Eucharist; others give service on Radio Maria reciting the Divine Office and the Rosary and offer other voluntary work at the Radio Maria Studio.
Various groups in the parish use the premisies for their meetings among whom there are the Carmelite tertiaries, Mothers’ Prayer Group, Charismatic Goups and for the celebration of Mass on the occasions of wedding and death aniversaries.
