Additional Location Information

Gharb Village History: Gharb is the village that the visitor to Gozo should not miss. Its panoramic countryside tracks and valleys are ideal for walks and for relaxing. If one is not interested in museums, a walk to the cliffs at Wied il-Mielah, is worth every second spent. There, a spectacular natural 'window', not as exploited, but similar to the Azure Window of Dwejra is found. Otherwise one could opt to sit relaxed in the peaceful and picturesque village square, enjoying the view of the church, the lethargic strokes of its clock tower, or curiously study the unique shape of old hand sculptured balconies that adorn the village's oldest homes.

Church / Church Bells / Church Organ:

On the 26th October 1729 the church was consecrated. On 19th May 1774 POPE CLEMENT XIV raised the church and on the 2nd October 1774 the first Cannons took their possession. They served as priests by staying in office for 23 years. The bells were made in 1732 and cost 3800 'skudi'. The larger one weighs 2448kg and cost 125 'skudi'. These were raised to steeple by the people themselves using beasts and other tools available at that time.

The organ was used for the 1st time on the 15th September 1912. On the 3rd January 1963 Pope John XXIII nominated the Archipriest as Protonaotary Apostolic. At that time Can. Archipriest Fr Guzepp Borg was the Archipriest. On the 28th November 1967, it was joined with the great devotion of Ta' Pinu Basilica with all honours and privileges of a minor Basilica and the chapter became to funcion in the same Basilica. It was Christmas 1971 when the Hebron choir under the direction of Canon Hon Achille Cauchi sang for the first time in the parish church.

Gharb as a Parish :

Bishop Mikiel Molina decided to raise the church to a Parish owing to the number of people (300) who were eligible to receive communion. Besides, the village of Gharb was 3 miles away from the Cathedral, and people who died at night could not receive the Blessed Sacrament. After being assured that the parochial community of Gharb could financially maintain a parish priest, Bishop Mikiel Glormu Molina declared Gharb as a parish on the 29th August 1679.

It is believed that Bishop Mikiel Molina used to live in the house which today is known as Penmon Farmhouse.
