The Venerable Fr George Preca founded the Society of Christian Doctrine, better known as the M.U.S.E.U.M., in 1907. This society includes lay men and women who learn the Word of God and teach this powerful Word to others. The acronym M.U.S.E.U.M. stands for the Latin words Magister Utinam Sequatur Evangelium Universus Mundus - "Master, may the whole world follow the Gospel!", undoubtedly, Fr George's greatest wish

Fr George Preca - the founder of the Society of Christian Doctrine

Throughout the years, several branches of the Society opened all over the Maltese Islands. Our Mellieha branch opened its doors for the village youths on the 22nd of October 1978. Every year, the brothers of the branch prepare from 40 to 50 10-year-old children for receiving the holy sacrament of Confirmation. We also teach catechism to children of ages 11 and above. About 70 preteens and adolescents attend our branch on a regular basis.

This religious education is carried out daily, and all year round. We also organize other activities, mostly in the festive or summer seasons, such as hikes, sports week, football league, quizzes, barbecues, and swimming events.

May the peace of the Lord be always with you.
