54 parishes have opened their premises to students sitting for take home exams which are due to start in the coming days.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, schools have been closed down until September. Lessons have been moved online while exams will either take place online or replaced.

In a statement on Saturday, the Archbishop’s Curia said that a number of parish priests have offered their premises and WiFi services to students who are taking exams but who may not have a quiet space at home where they can work.

The study spaces range from offices to parish halls or classrooms usually used for catechism classes.

The Curia said that this initiative will help those students who for some reason would find it difficult or not even possible to sit for an exam at home.

Those students who are interested in making use of this service should either contact their parish priest or send an email on

The College of Parish Priests has wished the students success in their upcoming exams.
