Christians all over the world celebrate Easter on 16 April, which marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
On Good Friday, Christians commemorate the sufferings, crucifixion and the death of Jesus Christ. It is a day of prayer and fasting, and many keep vigil in chapels and Churches, waiting for the day of Jesus' Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Easter is the celebration of victory over death, a celebration of new life. It symbolizes the ultimate victory of good over evil.
The gift of the Risen Christ is Peace. He said to his apostles and disciples, "Peace be with you and share this peace with one another".
I take this opportunity to wish you all - Staff, students, parents, alumni/ae, benefactors, friends and well-wishers of St. Xavier's, A Very Happy and Peace-filled Easter. May the Risen Christ bless all of you and your families.
