      Migrants celebrate wedding, First Holy Communion

      Forty Coptic Orthodox children from Eritrea and Ethiopia celebrated
      their First Holy Communion this morning in a ceremony which packed St
      James Church in Valletta with clapping migrants who danced in the
      pews to traditional music.

      The ceremony was performed by a Coptic orthodox Abba - Keshi Hayldab
      Keshi Kahsay - who came to Malta for the occasion. Because the
      ceremony is so rare, it grouped all Coptic Orthodox children
      currently in Malta. Their age varied from two months to 10 years.

      The ceremony was followed by the marriage of an an Eritrean couple,
      who first met in Eritrea but have been living in Malta for four
      years. At the end of the ceremony the couple led their singing guests
      in a happy celebration up Merchants' Street , round Castille and back
      to Merchants' Street where they left in a vintage open top car.
