Saint Augustine Priory and Church in the Notte Bianca

On Saturday, October 7, the Augustinian Community of Valletta took part in the Notte Bianca which has now become part of the Capital's annual Calendar through various interesting initiatives. Among these it is worth mentioning the Exhibition that was held at the Priory on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the foundation of Saint Augustine College in the same corridors that years ago hosted the school. At that time the Saint Augustine School was the first Church School offering free eduaction to the Maltese children. Several young people from Tagaste Youths who are all ex-students of the College, welcomed the people at the entrance of the Priory and toured them through the exhibition, and also through various parts of the Priory Museum. All those who came, were able to appreciate various artifacts of the Priory which is undergoing extensive restoration and which will form part of the Community Interpretation Center which should eventually be ready and open to the public in the coming months.

Apart from the celebration of the mass like every Saturday, two concerts were staged in the church by the Saint Monica Vocal Ensemble with a wonderful repertoire of sacred music. Both concerts were very well received by the public who appreciated both the pieces and the angelic voices.
