The Risen Christ
For several years, Pembroke was a military area and the Catholic German prisoners of war built a small chapel close to the army barracks as the second world war was nearing its end. After the British Services left Pembroke, and the first Maltese residents moved in, this chapel was redecorated to designs by Profs Richard England after a request from the St Julians Parish Priest. When a new pastoral zone for Ibrag was created, Pembroke started to form part of this zone until Palm Sunday of 1998 when due to the pastoral needs of residents in Pembroke the Church issued an Episcopal decree by which a new zone was created dedicated to The Risen Christ. A Parish Centre has been built and the new church is to be constructed in the near future.
