Santa Venera

  • The old church of St. Venera was given to the Carmelite friars in 1912, and six years later it became a parish church. Because of the rapid increase of the population in the locality the friars decided to build a new church on the main road to Mdina: the foundation stone of the church was laid on the 6th October 1990, and the church was inaugurated on 17th July 2005. It is now the parish church of the locality.

  • St. Joseph Church

    St. Joseph Institute was founded by Mgr F. Bonnici: at first the boys in the Institute lived in a house in Ħamrun, but it was soon realised that the house was too small and through the efforts of Rev. George Bugeja a piece of land was acquired from the Government to build the Institute; the Institute’s church was added at a later date. For a short period the Christian Brothers took care of the institute but today this is being done by the St. Paul’s Missionary Society.

    Dedication date: 14 May 1916
