The Diocese of Gozo has published the official photos from Mgr Anton Teuma’s Episcopal Consecration which was held on Friday at Xewkija parish church.

The celebration was originally due to be held in September at Ta’ Pinu, however, the date was changed because of coronavirus measures.

Xewkija’s parish church is the largest church on Gozo and it could therefore welcome a larger group of people while maintaining social distancing and adhering to all the guidelines as set out by the health authorities.

Here’s a glimpse of Dun Anton’s big day:
