Open day and night, with the Blessed Sacrament permanently exposed it provides solace to many a lost soul.  But the unique pastoral approach of this project is the fact that it caters not only for the soul but also for the body.  The Millennium Chapel/Wow has a twinning agreement with two significant institutions : The St. Clare Cloister Nuns Monastery and The Youth Football Association.  The former to join in prayer as  no less than three nuns found their vocations by frequenting the Chapel before they entered the Cloister Monastery and the latter, to promote the value of the body and the material world created by God  through  the sports values. 

Fr.Hilary, the Augustinian founder of the Chapel happens to be also the Founder of the Youth Football Association that brings together in the practice of sports thousands of children and young Maltese players .  The education of young people through sports values is the prime aim of the YFA.

The Chapel also offers free counseling sessions by  professionals to various people afflicted in addictions of drugs, gambling, alcohol, sex and other problems of  relationships, solitude and depression. A big number of needy families and single mothers collect food bags regularly from Wow (Wishing Others well)

The project is run by a Foundation of mostly lay people chaired by Dr. John C Grech who meet regularly to coordinate and monitor the work of over one hundred volunteers called “Welcomers” who are in charge of creating a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.  


Please consider supporting our efforts.
