Loreto Archbishop visits Il-Ħaġar – Heart of Gozo museum in Victoria


Mgr Giovanni Tonucci, the Archbishop of Loreto and Shrine Pontifical Delegate, who is in Gozo for the Għajnsielem patronal feast, has visited the Victoria museum Il-Ħaġar – Heart of Gozo. He was accompanied on his visit by Għajnsielem Archpriest Frankie Bajada.

Fondazzjoni Belt Victoria Chairman Antoine Vassallo conducted a tour for the visitors around the four levels of the museum

The Museum said that Mgr Tonucci repeatedly expressed his surprise “at such a quality of exhibits and their presentation.” He took numerous photos, asking “permission” to apply certain ideas to modernise aspects of the Loreto offering.

The Archbishop noted particularly the audio-visual rooms with their great variety of clips, as well as the central spine representing the various peoples, which, along the centuries, formed our identity. He commented that “such a place should be an element in any pastoral project.”
