Sunrise Service

Malta is famous for its Easter day processions of 'Statues of the Risen Christ' which attract thousands of people in towns and villages throughout the island. On this Easter morning our Sunrise Service celebrates this tradition. It's an ecumenical service and the preacher is the Archbishop of Malta, His Grace Monseigneur Charles Scicluna. The service is introduced by Canon Simon Godfrey, Chancellor of St Paul's Pro Cathedral in Valletta. The St Paul's Choral Society is directed by Hugo Agius Muscat and accompanied by Elisabeth Conrad.
