Two years ago the Church Authorities in Malta had ordered a ban on some healing services, and these had continued to be held outside of churches just the same, disobeying those orders.
The Maltese Curia has issued on 18th February 2005, a press release pertaining to Healing Services and Prayer Meetings with praying for healing, which are held all over the Archdiocese of Malta and the Diocese of Gozo.
UPDATE: Till this day (12/4/14) the Curia when contacted confirmed that the ban is still in force as the healing services by Catholic Revival Movement are still being organised. In Malta only Marana tha’, Fr Elija Vella and Fr Hayden Williams organise healing services with the required permission of the Archbishop. Others who are not priests are in disobedience of this.
