St Paul's Pro-Cathedral is an Anglican pro-cathedral situated in Independence Square, Valletta, Malta.
Origin and construction The cathedral was commissioned by the Dowager Queen Adelaide during a visit to Malta in the 19th Century when she found out that there was no place of Anglican worship on the island. Built on the site of the Auberge d’Allemagne (the conventual home of the German Knights Hospitaller), the cathedral was designed by William Scamp and was built between 1839 and 1844. Queen Adelaide laid the foundation stone on 20 March 1839 and her banner hangs above the choir stalls. A Valletta landmark due to its spire rising over 60 meters, it is constructed with Maltese limestone in a neo-classical style. The cathedral has columns with capitals of the Corinthian order while the capitals of the six columns of the portico are of the Ionic order. The internal dimensions of the building are 33.5 metres x 20.4 metres. The Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the Lady chapel located to the left of the pulpit facing the altar. The organ Above the entrance to the cathedral is located the organ that originated in Chester Cathedral in northwest England. The one-manual instrument was built in 1684 by Bernard Smith and is said to have been played by George Frederick Handel while en route to Dublin for the first performance of the Messiah. Association with British military forces The oak panels around the High Altar are a memorial to the Allied units which took part in the defence of Malta between 1940 and 1943 and twelve flags hang in the aisles representing amongst others the Royal Air Force, the British Merchant Navy, and the Royal Navy.
Mission: St Paul's Pro-Cathedral in Valletta, Holy Trinity Church in Sliema and the congregation of Our Lady and St George in Victoria Gozo are Anglicanism's expression in the Maltese archipelago. We are part of the Diocese in Europe, which is the most recently created of the forty-four dioceses of the Church of England. So, as the Anglican Church in Malta and Gozo we exist primarily to serve members not only of the Church of England but also of the rest of the Anglican Communion, while welcoming English speaking Christians of other denominations, seeking to worship God in their language, who also find a spiritual home with us.

Often the phrases "afternoon tea" and "high tea" are used interchangeably as many mistakenly believe that there is no difference. Both tea traditions are steeped in British history and the differences, subtle as they may be, are a direct result of their origins.
