The JP2 Foundation will be commemorating the first centenary from the birth of Karol Wojtyla and the 30th anniversary from the first Pontiff visit to the Maltese Islands by hosting the King’s School Worchester Choir from the United Kingdom in three localities in Malta and Gozo.
The King’s School Worchester Choir was founded by Henry VIII in 1541. It is a Cathedral choir school and educates all of the Cathedral choristers. The school choir sings regularly in Worcester Cathedral and includes pupils aged between 11 and 18 who sing a wide range of sacred and secular music. They tour Europe every two years.
The choir will be visiting three localities; the first is San Lawrenz, Gozo. The concert will take place at St Lawrence Parish Church on Saturday 15th February 2020 starting at 7.00 pm (immediately after the service ends). This event is in full collaboration with San Lawrenz Local Council and the Parish Church.
The second locality which will host the choir is Floriana, which had the privilege of hosting Pope Saint John Paul II during the mass on the Granaries. The choir will be animating the Sunday liturgy mass at St Publius Parish Church on Sunday 16th February 2020 starting at 9.00 am.
The third locality is Sliema. There, the choir will perform a sacred music concert at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish Church, known as the Sacro Cuor Sanctuary, on Monday 17th February 2020 starting at 6.15 pm (immediately after the service ends). This event is in full collaboration with Sliema Local Council and the Franciscan Fathers.
