Meeting of Volunteers 2009_3
On the 8th of October, KDZ (Kummissjoni Djocesana Zghazagh) commissioned a meeting for all Maltese volunteers who offered their time for others during the summer. Gi Fra Floriana organized and coordinated this year’s meeting which was held at Magazino, Valletta.

The program was a varied one, with monologues, live music from the band Foot Prints and sharing of experiences from volunteers. Tara Elese Galea and David Leone Ganado represented SPYS during this event, where they both shared their experiences of the days they spent in India and in Ghana respectively.

“These are the best ambassadors of Malta and of the Church”, this is how Archbishop Paul Cremona described the volunteers in the opening sentence of his speech. The Archbishop had encouraging words for us youths. In the end he encouraged all the volunteers who went abroad this summer to continue do to voluntary work in Malta and share what they have learnt with the local community.
