In a press release the Archdiocese of Malta is inviting everyone to join in the ordination celebration.

The soon to be deacons are Osmar Baldacchino from the parish of Saint Nicholas in Siġġiewi, David Borg from the parish of Our Lady of Graces in Żabbar, Cristopher Buġeja from the parish of Saint Paul in Rabat, Jonathan Debattista from the parish of Our Lady Assumption in Tarxien and Tony Pace from the parish of the Conversion of Saint Paul in Safi.
