24th Service of Thanksgiving & Remembrance

Last Saturday, February 20th, marked the 24th occasion of our Annual Service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance in the Chapel of Mater Hospital.

Once again, the turnout was hugely impressive and we would like to sincerely thank all who attended. In particular, we would like to acknowledge those who contributed on the day, both in terms of readings and prayers as well as those who assisted in funding the occasion.

A number of photographs were taken on the day and they will be uploaded to this website in the coming weeks.


Please continue to follow this website and our Facebook page for further updates on the activities of the IHLTA.
