Pope's visit 2022

CareMalta residents were amongst the 20,000 people who attended the Holy Mass at the Granaries in Floriana, the highlight of the Pope’s two-day visit to Malta.

The residents had this golden opportunity to see Pope Francis, while he gave his blessings and sent messages of hope, love, courage, and care for all people, especially to those who are experiencing any form of suffering.

Originally set for May 2020, Pope Francis arrived in Malta last Saturday, 2nd April 2022, for a two-day apostolic visit which unfortunately had been delayed for two years by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Residents at CareMalta had been longing for the Pope’s visit and since throughout the CareMalta Group, there is a true passion to deliver the best for the residents, the Facility Managers from various CareMalta homes made sure to bring joy to their residents by attending the Holy Mass.

CareMalta believes that the elderly desire a healthy life, care, and dignity, wanting to play a bigger role in society. Pope Francis referred to the role of the elderly in today’s society on  March 16, 2022, during his weekly General Audience in the Paul VI Audience Hall. Pope Francis explained how the role of the elderly can hand life’s true values to younger generations.
