Gozo Pictures This Weekend
This weekend in Ghammar we had the Festa ta' San Pupulju. We named our farmhouse there after the little chapel that lies down the alley around the corner. Unfortunately there are not many activities that take place in the chapel now apart fromt a monthly mass and the actual feast weekend. We attended 'vespers' on the Saturday afternoon and there were more clergy and alter boys than persons in the congregation. The actual feast mass was on Sunday afternoon and that is always totally packed right out into the tiny piazza outside the little chapel since coaches come up on a pilgrimage each year from Floriana in Malta. The patron saint of Floriana is St. Publius aswell so they make a day of it.
