For the 16th consecutive year, on the night between Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, the annual pilgrimage is being organised. Last year, over 10,000 people participated and this year numbers are expected to grow further. This night walk started by Mr. Joseph Vella from Mellieħa and his son in law Glenn, but year after year the number of people joining this night walk has increased exponentially.

For several years, participants of this night walk have now been contributing to the Puttinu Cares Cancer Support Group cause. Last year €91,190 were collected both from participants and several other sponsors who support this event. Participants are asked to donate a minimum of €10.

Everybody is invited to join in this night walk on Friday 19th April which starts at 12.30am sharp from the Mellieha Parish Square (the main square) and ends at the Granaries in Floriana (fosos). Those joining are invited to be in Mellieħa latest by 12.00am. This is approximately a 4-hour walk covering around 22 kilometers. Upon arrival, a certificate of participation will be awarded to all participants.

Water stations and refreshments will be available along the walk. Free transport prior to the walk from Floriana Granaries, from 10.00pm on Thursday, and after the walk to Mellieħa will be provided upon booking. Minibuses will be available along the route to pick up those who decide to stop and these will be taken to the Granaries in Floriana. Medical staff will also be on standby in case of emergencies.
