Malta – Northern Region – Mgarr – Monsinjur Orazju Vella

In my occasional series about people represented on statues, I had hoped to find out more about this individual. All I know is that he lived from 1912 to 1980 (that bit was easy to work out) and he came to serve the church in Mgarr in 1954. Beyond that, I couldn’t establish much, but I’m guessing that he was a popular local member of the Catholic Church.
