As from this year of formation, Fr Alex Refalo, from the Nativity of Mary Parish in Xagħra, is replacing Fr Joseph Farrugia as spiritual director of the Major Seminary. Fr Farrugia hails from the Parish of the Visitation in Għarb. It was deemed fitting to thank Fr Farrugia for his essential work which he performed within the community for five years. With this aim in mind, the Seminarians’ Representative Council (K.R.S.) organised a barbeque at Imġarr ix-Xini Bay, on Friday 12th October 2012. At the end of the barbeque Fr Farrugia and Fr Alex Refalo cut the cake prepared for the occasion. The community presented Fr Joseph with a memento.
