The Village of Ghajnsielem lies
in the south eastern tip of the island overlooking the busy harbour
of Imgarr. One tale that focus on Ghajnsielem is the vision where
once lived a kind peace living farmer called Anglu Grech.
He was so devout that he recited the holy Rosary
even when he was hard at work in his fields. One evening while he
was watering his crops he saw a vision of a radiant lady who requested
him to erect a statue of Our Lady of Loreto. The vision indicated
the site as that where the old parish church now stands.
In spite of the villagers meagre means they raised
a substantial sum which enabled them to rect a statue on the spot
the vision had indicated. After that every night the villagers assembled
around the statue and recited the Holy Rosary with great devotion.
