Christmas Children’s Evening Mass

The Parents Teacher Association would like to extend an invitation to all parents, guardians, teachers, families and their friends to join us in celebrating Christmas Eve.  The celebrations shall start with a traditional Christmas Eve Mass by Fr. Justin Schembri and animated by Mr. Ivan De Gabriele, Ms. Laura Zahra and Mr. David Dimech, followed by hot chocolate and mince pies on:

Date: 

 Wednesday 24th December 2013

Time: 

 20:00 (sharp!)

Venue: 

 Lasallian Hall – Stella Maris College

Entrance shall be through Junior Grounds where parking is available.

Fr. Justin is asking children to be familiar with the story of the film ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas (The Meaning of Christmas).  You can watch a short video on http://tinyurl.com/CharlieBrownMalta.

In the Spirit of Christmas children may generously donate a small gift which will be presented during Mass.  These will be later donated to the Missionary Sisters of Charity, better known as the Sisters of Mother Theresa.  It would be greatly appreciated if the gifts are wrapped.  Please ensure that all gifts donated are not broken or used.  Any money collected during the Mass will also be donated to the same organisation.

As per our tradition, it will be nice if everyone can bring any goodies on the day.  These will be shared after Mass together with the mince pies and hot chocolate provided by the PTA.

If you are coming and would like your son/daughter to participate (such as by saying bidding prayer) please contact Evan Camilleri. (first come, first served).

Lejla Maltija at Stella Maris

On April 12 @ 18:30, the Stella Maris College PTA will be organising a Lenten Evening followed by Lejla Maltija at Stella Maris College. Lejla Maltija will be animated by Mr. Ivan Grech of Winter Moods.

Ivan Grech (Wintermoods)

During Lent, people around the world come together in repentance, sacrifice, and response to the story of Christ with the desire to be changed not just for a season, but also for the rest of their lives. The evening will start with a talk for adults whilst the children will be entertained in a separate area. The talk will be followed by Holy Mass.

After Mass we will organise a ‘Lejla Maltija’ with food prepared by chef Renato Spiteri. Lejla Maltija will be animated by Mr. Ivan Grech of Winter Moods.

The dates for this event will be Thursday 24th April (afternoon) till Saturday 26th April (afternoon).

This year we are ALSO inviting parents who want to attend to this event.  We will be sending more information soon HOWEVER we would appreciate if you, as a parent, will be attending to send us an email on pta@stellamaris.edu.mt in order to have an idea on the number of adults attending and to give you more information.

If you are not attending but your son would like to attend you can also inform us in order to reserve a place for him.  Please note that we have a limit of 40 children for this event due to the number of camps and other equipment available.
