Kallianpur : The great vigil of Easter or Paschal Vigil started this year at Milagres Church here at 7pm,  near the church entrance which was led by Rev Fr. Stany B. Lobo. This year Easter Vigil started 7pm rather supposed to be at 11pm during previous years. The lights within the church were put off and all the people moved to the entrance of the church for the Service of Light where new fire was lit. Rev Fr. Stany was blessed the new fire and lit Easter Candle.

Following the lighting of the Pascal Candle, it was carried within the church by Rev Fr. Uday Joseph Fernandes. At three different times Fr. Uday sang ‘Christ Our Light’ to which the congregation replied ‘Thanks be to God’. Meanwhile the congregation lit their candles from the Easter Candle. As the procession continued towards the main altar, the entire church was alight.

Rev Fr. Uday was the main celebrant of the Easter Vigil service along with Rev Fr. Stany B. Lobo, Rev Fr. Ivan Rodrigues and Rev Fr Agnelo D’Souza of Pilar Fathers. After the readings and hymns  the next stage in the Easter Vigil was the Liturgy of Baptism.Bro. Prajoth D’Sa invoked the Litany of the Saints followed by the Blessing of Water by Rev. Fr. Stany Lobo. Fr. Uday during his homily address gave easter message. After the renewal of the Baptismal Vows, the congregation was blessed by the priests by sprinkling Holy Water. The solemn Easter Mass resumed with the special prayers inserted during the Eucharist Prayer.
