Mgr Paul C. Vella, and H.E. Fra’ Francis Vassallo, were invested as Honorary Canons of the Collegiate Chapter of the Conventual Church of Saint Lawrence in Birgu. 



The investiture ceremony was held today at 5 pm and was followed by Holy Mass of Thanksgiving. Archpriest Canon Karm Busuttil was the main celebrant, assisted by the members of the Collegiate Chapter of St. Lawrence.
