Christians of St Paul Quasi Parish Nkwen have been challenged to be true witnesses of the resurrected Jesus Christ. Rev Fr Ignatius Waindim made the call on Sunday 17 April 2022 during a solemn Holy Mass that marks the resurrection of Jesus three days after his death by crucifixion.
With all the events that surround Easter particularly his resurrection as recounted in the Bible, the Parish Priest stated that the lives of Christians must be examplary. He huged the Christians to be strong in faith and believe such that even in court and at the expense if their lives, they can still declare it.
According to him, only such conviction and commitment can make Christians an extension of Jesus Christ. This he added must be done by forgiving, reconciling and making peace with one another.
As one of the principal feast of the Roman Catholic Church and other Christian churches that respect the observance, Easter marks an end to the Lenten season of fasting, prayers and armsgiving.
Like other Roman Catholic Churches, St Paul Quasi Parish ahead of Easter observed Good Friday with the public way of the cross and Holy Saturday with the Easter eve fire and Holy Mass.
The administration of the sacrament of Baptism on adults and Infants was a major of the observance.
