Easter Vigil at Valencia Church

Mangalore, April 4, 2021: After 40 days of the Lenten Season, including the Holy Week the Christian fraternity celebrated Easter with joy and fervour.

At Valencia church the celebration started at 7.00pm.Before the festive mass all the lights were switched off at the church grounds. The Easter Candle was lit 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 Roque 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 Roque in his homily highlighted "We must fall in love with Jesus.When we love him,it becomes easier for us to do what he wants.Our love for the risen Lord should be shown through our profound relationship to him and much more through our works of charity.The risen Saviour is not resting at the right hand of God the Father,He is actively and really present amidst us and in our hearts".

The main celebrant was Parish Priest Roque D’Sa.Con-celebrants were Asst PP Fr Lancy D’Souza and Fr William Barracas
