Sailing with the cross

Luke Rawalai
Monday, April 01, 2013

FAITHFUL believers of Labasa Holy Family Catholic Church and other churches in the North held the traditional Easter vigil on Saturday night.

Labasa Holy Family church was filled to capacity as members sat in the sidewalks beside the church to listen to the Easter Vigil message.

On the Garden Island of Taveuni, youths from Vunikura, Naweni, Vunisavisavi and Dakuniba took part in the Easter walk from their villages to sail with the cross across the sea towards Taveuni.

Wairiki Parish priest Father Eneriko Nacolarara said the youths from Buca Bay had joined their counterparts on Taveuni and proceeded with the Easter walk from Lavena towards the Wairiki Catholic Parish where they camped for the Easter weekend.

"We had also commemorated the Easter Vigil yesterday in commemoration of Christ and the disciples prayer watch before the resurrection," he said.

"The rain failed to dampen the spirit of the faithful believers as they took their time out to join in the Easter walk."

Mr Nacolarara said the resurrection of Christ signalled a new life and that it was time for Christians to set aside the old and begin anew.
