Over one hundred years ago in Xaghra, the need was felt to build a moderately big church to cater for the needs of the townsfolk living on the eastern flank of Xaghra. This led to the laying of the foundation stone of a new church in the area known as Ta’ Gnien Xibla. On the afternoon of 20th September 1903, H.L. Bishop Giovanni M Camilleri O.S.A. went to Xaghra and laid the foundation stone of a new church during a solemn ceremony. The church was to be dedicated to Jesus of Nazareth and from then onwards the area came to be known as ‘In-Nazzarenu’.
