President David Granger along with his daughter, Han Granger-Gaskin attended Easter Sunday service at St. Matthew’s Parish church, Providence, East Bank of Demerara where he reminded the congregation that the most sacred Christian holiday is Easter.
“Easter is the reason for the church. Without the passion of Christ, without the resurrection, there would be no reason for the church, no cause no justification… It is the resurrection of Christ we celebrate,” the Head of State said.
President Granger expressed his appreciation to Father Ayobami Ayorinde for a wonderful service and the congregation for their payers on his speedy recovery.
On April 20, the Head of State returned from the Republic of Cuba where he is undergoing treatment from Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
“I have been fighting this disease of cancer and I would like to thank you for your prayers and good wishes,” he said.
He urged those gathered at the St. Matthew’s Parish Church to remember the importance of Easter not only once annually but throughout the year.
“Let the message of Easter take you through the year unto next year,” President Granger said as he reminded that Christianity is a religion of love, faith and hope. (DPI)
