Easter Sunday Processions
Easter Sunday in Malta commemorates the Resurrection of Christ reminding us that he rose from death. It is the most important feast in the Roman Catholic church calendar.
The ringing of the Church bells both in Malta and Gozo and the processions with the statue of l-Irxoxt, the Risen Christ brings back many customs that the Maltese have had for centuries. This tradition is repeated every year in a number of villages in Malta and Gozo.
In Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua a group of men will run the last stretch of roads with the statue and people throw confetti from the windows to celebrate.
