The Saint Martin Dinner

This year the feast of St Martin of Tours fell on Sunday, 11th November.  On this occasion, the Seminary holds its annual dinner known as L-Ikla ta’ San  Martin.  This year the dinner was held on Saturday 10th November.  This activity has become a tradition since it has been held for many years.  L-Aħwa Ħbieb tas-Seminarju were in charge of the organisation of this activity.  This is a fund raising activity for the Major Seminary.  About one hundred and sixty persons attended, packing the Seminary main hall where the dinner was held.  The delicious dishes were prepared by the nuns at the Seminary, helped by a number of volunteers.  During the activity the seminarians play a different role from their usual one – that of waiters…  So guests at this dinner were served by ‘seminarian waiters’!…  Manuel Rapa animated the evening with his music, songs and jokes.  H.E. Mons Bishop Mario Grech, and Mr and Mrs Anton Tabone were guests of honour.
