Christmas at the Priory

Candlelit Carols sung by the VOCA Choir at St Mark’s Church followed by Special Christmas Dinner in the Cloister of the Rabat Priory.

The scintillating VOCA choir will open the evening with a repertoire of Christmas music at St. Mark’s Church, built in 1558 by Girolamo Cassar. Following the concert, guests will be invited to continue the evening in the cloister surrounding the central courtyard of the Priory built by Andrea Belli in 1740.




Welcome drinks and canapes will be served on arrival and a three-course Christmas meal, inclusive of coffee, wine and water, prepared by Osborne Caterers will then be served in the cloister. The evening will be given a Swedish twist in celebration of Santa Lucija.

FAA is undertaking the restoration of a unique late medieval four-panel ‘tempera on board’ altarpiece in order to ensure that this priceless work of art will be enjoyed by future generations. This unique set, found at the Augustinian Priory of St. Mark in Rabat, dates to the late Medieval period and depicts the Madonna of Graces with flanking panels dedicated St Paul, St Augustine and St Catherine. This work of art has been described as “one of the most important art treasures in Malta” due to its rarity and fine quality.

The concert and dinner is to be held on Friday 11th December 2015, 7.30pm at the Augustinian Priory is at Triq Santu Wistin, Rabat, round the corner from the Saqqajja BoV branch.
