The Pontiffs of the Holy Roman Catholic Church

For nearly 300 years Roman Catholicism was discouraged within the British Isles and beyond, however a significant proportion remained faithful to the Holy Roman Catholic Church.

 This page is dedicated to the wonderful people of Malta, especially to Anthony Camilleri and his son Steven and their friends who carry out restoration work.
