St. Patrick’s Church

St. Patrick’s Church, a Roman Catholic Church, welcomes all believers.

Located right at the centre of the busy town of Sliema, it offers a daily liturgical service for locals and visitors. The Church has been giving service ever since its opening in 1905. The first group of Salesian Fathers arrived from Italy on 13th November 1903. The Church was officially blessed and inauguarted on the 30th July 1905. All services are in English.

It is administered by the Salesians of Don Bosco – an international Congregation of Fathers and Brothers founded in 1869 by St. John Bosco. The Salesians are mainly involved in the education and evangelisation of the young, especially those of the poor and needy class. Attached to the church there is the ‘St. Patrick’s School’ for boys.

An Annual procession to commemorate the feast of Mary Help of Christians is held on the 4th Sunday of the month of May. Marriages and special masses are often celbrated in this Chapel.

At present the Chaplain is Rev. Fr. Savio Vella sdb

The primary intention of is to serve the faithful as a repository of all publicly accessible Roman Catholic chapels, pastoral centres, churches, sanctuaries, basilicas and cathedrals in Malta and Gozo, listing all mass celebrations taking place within.

The site can also serve as a powerful search tool to locals and foreigners alike wishing to locate on a map and visit a particular temple to admire its architectural beauty or priceless treasures.
