On the day of St. Bakhita, the Good Shepherd Sisters had Mass offered for victims of Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence at our Good Shepherd Sisters – Dar Merhba Bik Foundation shelter for Domestic Violence Survivors. Mass was celebrated by Fr. Charles Cordina.

Before Mass Fr. Charles invited Sr. Margaret Gonzi to speak about the sufferings that St. Bakhita went through while she was trafficked several times, and the horror of Human trafficking happening all over the world. Sr. Margaret spoke about Pope Francis’ concern and this special day of prayer for victims of Human Trafficking, which he had announced in 2015.
