Youths and children to celebrate with play 100th anniversary of ‘Madonna tas-Sacro Cuor’ parish

A group of 40 youths and children from the ‘Madonna tas-Sacro Cuor’ parish at Sliema will today perform a play on the occasion of the centenary feasts of the parish. The play recounts the history of the parish.

Ġrajjiet imġedda is the name of the play which will be performed by young participants, mainly altar boys of the Sacro Cuor parish. Written by Tony Terribile, under the direction of Robert Pulis, the play features 10 important moments in the history of the Sliema parish.

Robert Pulis stated “we will see episodes of the past 100 years, that include a section on the war; how the church was built and why the Sliema community decided to build another parish here in the locality; and the way people lived”.

The play, which was produced during the past six months, will also provide answers to the reasons why the Maltese Curia wanted to build another church in Sliema a 100 years ago and why Sliema residents were most enthusiastic for the church to become a parish. The play explains why the church was dedicated to Our Lady under the title of ‘Sultana tal-Qalb Imqaddsa ta’ Ġesu’

On the 100 anniversary of the parish, the 29th September, Our Lady statue will be crowned by Archbishop Charles J. Scicluna while the church will be declared a Sanctuary. The following day, a pilgrimage with the newly-crowned statue will be held in the parish locality.
