As part of the tradition of the NICCSJ, members of the community and visitors alike joined together in the atrium just a few moments after the final blessing that concluded the Easter Sunday mass service celebration on April 9th, 2023.
Everyone got together and enjoyed the different delicacies in the company of family and friends. As can be seen from the picture gallery, people of all ages had a good time celebrating the belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ which was hosted in a lovely atmosphere of joy in a conducive environment.
The renowned Nigerian Jolof rice was among many other African dishes that were offered during the event. Also on the menu was a selection of both appetizers and continental dishes.
Please check out the gallery to see the different historical picture collections as the NICCSJ celebrated Easter Sunday, also known as Resurrection Sunday or Pascha Sunday, on April 9, 2023.
According to the New Testament, Easter is one of the most significant days in the Christian faith, particularly among the Catholic community globally, given that it commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the tomb. This day was significant for the community since it coincided with the once-a-month mass service, which takes place on the second Sunday of every other month.
Furthermore, the day is significant for the community because Baptism, the first sacrament received when entering the Catholic faith, was performed. Baptism is the sacrament of initiation in the Catholic Church, which signifies that once accepted, you formally become members of the body of Christ.
