Fr Alfred Agius will be remembered for his assiduous teaching and spreading of the Word of God. It was in this way that Archbishop Charles Scicluna remembered this 70 year-old priest from Ħaż-Żebbuġ whose life was terminated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the homily during the funeral mass, Archbishop Scicluna said that Fr Agius had given his life, with its many ups and downs to God, living in poverty and spreading the love of learning. He added that in calling to Him Fr Agius, God is presenting us with the opportunity to make sense out of the life we lead and understand that there is more to life than what is immediately tangible.
