St John’s Co-Cathedral

The St John’s Co-Cathedral Foundation, established in 2001, preserves heritage by digitizing St. John’s Co-Cathedral’s tapestries. This initiative ensures preservation, facilitates study, and extends the cathedral’s impact beyond its walls. The Melita Foundation partnership enriches the global community with a digital portal to the past, preserving artistic heritage for the future.

Preserving heritage through digitisation and supporting a new chapter of preservation and accessibility. St John’s Co-Cathedral stands as a testament to history and artistry.

The St John’s Co-Cathedral Foundation, established in 2001, has been tirelessly dedicated to safeguarding the cathedral’s invaluable art and artifacts. The latest undertaking involves the digitisation of the cathedral’s tapestries, a project that promises to benefit the public, scholars, and researchers alike.

By digitising the tapestries, the foundation not only ensures the preservation of these treasures for future generations but also opens doors for detailed study and exploration. The Melita Foundation partnership extends the cathedral’s impact beyond its physical walls, enriching the global community with a glimpse into its artistic heritage offering a digital portal into the past that enriches the present and preserves the legacy for the future.

Working together for a better future

Since our launch in 2020, The Melita Foundation has supported dozens of projects run by many diverse organisations. Project beneficiaries range from the very young to the very young-at-heart, from the the very local – such as supporting STEM skills development for school children in the Three Cities – to projects which will have an impact beyond our borders: supporting extensive tree planting; developing skills in maritime law and conservation; preserving parts of our heritage entwined with our diaspora.
