Feast of St Paul’s Shipwreck Holiday in Malta

The 10th of February in Malta marks the event of the shipwreck of St. Paul on the Island back in the year 60 AD. The testimony to this event comes from the Acts of the Apostles in the Bible and is accepted as the moment when Christianity was brought to the Mediterranean country. St Paul was on his way to Rome from Jerusalem when a storm blew his vessel onto Malta's shores. It is believed that during his refuge in Malta, St Paul established the first Christian community on the Island.
