The celebration started at 7.00pm. Parish Priest Fr Denis D’Souza lighted the Easter Candle from the “New Fire” and carried it to the Altar in a procession. As the candle was taken down the aisle, parishioners lit the candles from the flame, illuminating the area in candlelight.Water was blessed and the Holy water was then sprinkled on all those present.

Fr Denis Dsouza sang the Exsultet - the Easter Hymn. Five readings from the Sacred Scriptures gave a glimpse of the salvation story of Israel and mankind in general. As the Gloria resounded in the air the image of Risen Jesus got unveiled.

Fr Joachim in his homily highlighted on that we are empowered with the spirit of Christ to live a truly Christian life. By Jesus rising from the dead has given us a new hope to our life. He had redeemed us from our sins and and gave us new life So Christians are Easter people. Our foundation of our Faith is the risen Christ.

Rev . Fr Denis Dsouza thanked each sponsors for their generosity and invoked the blessings of Risen Christ.
