According to the Parliamentary Secretary, the Hon.Silvio Parnis, this week on “F Living TV”, he said that he gave instructions to the Paola Mayor, to find a place in front of the Paola Parish Church to have a Bus Stop installed as requested by the people.At least, there seems to be such people with a heart left.Hope that before the inauguration of the new Paola square, most probably by the Prime Minister, ect., we would have the said bus stop installed for the benefit of, not just the Paola people, but for all those that make use of it, that it is believed to of thousands.Thank you Hon.Silvio Parnis .
I agree about the flowers. It would be a perfect spot. I've loved watching all the Easter parades. I visited Malta for the first time in February and loved it so much that I've booked a longer stay in September. Part of that decision has been helped along by watching these webcams so, they are worthwhile!
The front of the church is crying out for some green foliage and /or spring flowers !!!
13apr18--Diane Almeida, Each 'live-cam' here in SkylineWebcams ( SL ) is purchased by a sponsor.SL collects a monthly fee ( depends on options - like 'audio' / 'time-lapse' / panning' for providing their services like having each on-line feed listed, monitouring comments, approving 'photos' ect. Our sponsor here on this feed is the local government of Paola with " Vodafone " hosting the camera location, computer and internet connection which gives us what we observe on these three feeds. Our view of Christ the King Church is the bait used to attract tourism to this area of beautiful Malta. Wiki on Cospicua (also known as Bormla) lists a parish along with a few churches. Wiki also shows who are the current local government leaders of Bormla. Contacting them might be a good starting point for you to achieve your goal. FYI if you didn't know already there is a feed here on SL with the cities of Senglea, Cospicua (Bormla) and Birgu in the background from the British Hotel. EnJoy EnJoy
Hi I live in Canada almost all my life I was born here. I love the cameras that's in the cities and watch different views. I don't know to who I can write to but I really wish that they can put a camera in front of Bormla church please, my father is from there and I like to make his wish come true. please and Thank you.
Yes, I enjoyed watching the building works too.
Boring now building works to watch
I totally agree with you Charles the bus stop will be very helpful to everybody, specially the elderly. It only requires a slight modification to the square in front church and also have a bus shelter put in place.
@ sej016 , Mr.David Cachia and to whom it may concern.The reason why the bust stop is important to be re-instated in the middle of the square, is very simple, just ask the many elderly people and the hundreds of people that leaves around the Paola church and the thousands that used to utilize this bus stop every day. I am sure that when in the old days the Government at that day, decided there was the need for such a bus stop and installed it with its shelter in the middle of the Square (in front of the Church), was taken for humanitarian reasons. For those who are not familiar with the Paola Square and the where about are the other bus stops, there is one near the Paola Police station and the other one is in front of the Palace hall in Tarxien road. If someone would like to know the length from the one near the Police Station to where the bus stop used to be in front of the church, will find out, that there is more than 350 meters apart and approximately the same goes to the other one in front of the Palace.In my opinion, a new bus stop can be easily placed with some modifications to the new pavement, facing to the front of the “Helpful” ironmongery shop.Hope that who is in charge of this much-needed Paola Square uplift project will open his eyes and have a heart.Thank you.
2apr18--The parish of Paola or as it more commonly known as Raħal Ġdid, was created in 1910 by Archbishop Pietro Pace. The 17th century St. Ubaldesca Church (St. Ubaldesca Church , can be found on wiki and has a picture) was chosen as the parish church. Plans were made for a larger church to be built. In 1924 the cornerstone was laid and thus construction commenced. The church started to be used as the parish church 1936. The church was consecrated and dedicated to Christ the King on June 3, 1967 by Archbishop Mikiel Gonzi . EnJoy EnJoy , Thanks for the info. Albert, I expect 'photos' have been uploaded and Thank You to those contributors.
Happy Easter to all. At 0900 the statue of the Risen Christ will go out of the church followed by band marches through the streets of Paola and at around 11.15 it be back on the church parvis ready to enter back into the church were most of the local children and their parents will be on the parvis for the blessings of their Easter Eggs or Figolas.
The camera inside Naxxar is DOWN!
One can see also the Procession of Naxxar.
Very nice and interesting today. We can see two Good Friday processions. One here and the other one in Qormi - St. George's Parish Church.
