A spontaneous celebration erupted in Floriana this morning commemorating the village’s patron saint St Publius.

While village feasts for this year have been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, locals nevertheless found a way to honour St Publius in a relatively safe manner.

The feast of St Publius is generally held on the 5th of May. Apart from being Floriana's patron saint, St Publius joins St Paul as the two patron saints of Malta.
