In a heartwarming display of community unity and charity, the sixth edition of the exhilarating motorcycle pilgrimage, organised by the Parishes of Ħad-Dingli and Mġarr, roared through the streets on the Feast of Santa Marija revving up a generous sum of €540 for the Franġiskani Soup Kitchen.

Dingli and Mġarr residents and motorcycle enthusiasts alike were treated to an unusual sight as the morning sun cast a golden glow over the Mġarr parsonage. Dozens of gleaming motorbikes lined the main square, transforming it into a bustling hub of excitement and compassion. As the clock struck 9 a.m., the resonant tones of a mass signaled the beginning of a unique pilgrimage.

With the Parish Priest of Mġarr, Rev. George Schembri, at the helm, a throng of enthusiastic motorcyclists embarked on a journey that merged the thrill of the open road with a heartfelt mission. This year’s pilgrimage took on special significance as it aimed to contribute to the noble cause of the Franġiskani Soup Kitchen, a beacon of hope for the less fortunate.

Amidst the roar of engines, a call for donations resounded through the air, resulting in the collection of a remarkable €540.

A poignant pause halfway through the pilgrimage took place in front of the Archpriest Church of San Sebastian in Qormi. Here, the Archpriest Canon Eucharist Zammit led a solemn moment of prayer, underscoring the spiritual aspect of this unique event.

Guiding the motorcade were diligent officers from the Police Traffic Section, ensuring a safe and harmonious journey for all.
