Dar tal-Kleru

Christus Sacerdos (Christ the Priest) Home in Fleur-de-Lys Birkirkara, Malta was inaugurated on the 8th of May 1964.  The Home was founded by Mgr. Prof. Salvatore Grima (1909-1990), a holy and zealous priest, who had a great love for his fellow priests. He believed it was his vocation to pray and work for the sanctification of priests and to care for their spiritual and mental well-being. For this reason, he generously undertook the construction of a Home which would serve as a residence and rest home for priests; a centre that provides for their needs and promotes priestly spirituality; as well as a retreat house and venue for meetings promoting spiritual animation for religious and lay people.


Today, Dar tal-Kleru is a nursing home for the clergy (Diocesan and Religious Order Priests) and forms part of the Church Homes for the Elderly. Residents contribute fee, but the Home relies heavily on the generosity of benefactors. The home is run by a number of employees as well as volunteers and a community of nuns called il-Qaddejja taċ-Ċenaklu, who dedicate themselves to prayer and the service of the Lord in His priests.
