April 16, 2022 : Christians celebrate the joyful resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday, which is celebrated all over the world. Just before the festive mass, the faithful sit in darkness and wait for the parish priests to light Easter Candles from the 'new fire'. The 'new fire' and the candle is then taken in a short procession along the aisle while parishioners light candles from the flame, filling the entire church with candlelight.

At St. Lawrence Minor Basilica, Attur, Rev. Dr Sunil Kumar D'souza, Director of Bangalore seminary led the ceremony in the presence of Rector Fr. Alban D'souza, Fr. Melwin Pinto and Deacon Pradeep Cardoza starting from the blessing of the Paschal candle which signifies the victory of light over darkness. He also blessed the fire and holy water before the Holy Eucharist began.
