This year due to the coronavirus situation instead of the pilgramage to seven different churches on Maundy Thursday, the public is being invited to follow the prayers through bradcasting on television and also online as the Archidiocese of Malta has made accessible all the Holy Week celebrations in Maltese and English on Newsbook.com.mt and through soter.kinisja.mt
The video of the ballots will remain available for future reference, the Curia said.
The Kummissjoni Djoċesana Tfal (Children's Diocesan Commission) within the Archbishop's Curia and the children who are part of this commission have sent a message to these children who may be lonely or worried because of the current situation through a video called 'Magħqudin flimkien mill-bogħod' (Together from a Distance).
The Archbishop's Curia explained that the first ballots that are being postponed are the Participation Ballots for girls and boys for admission into Form 1 and the Participation Ballot for girls for admission into Year 1. These ballots were going to be held on 26 March.
