Happy Easter to everyone from Mullingar
"The light of Easter dispels the darkness and fears" - that was the message from Bishop Smith on Easter Sunday. The Bishop celebrated the Easter Vigil in the Cathedral and the Mass of the Lord's Resurrection in St Paul's Church on Easter Sunday.
A number of babies and young children were baptised during Masses for Easter Sunday. The Easter water was blessed as a reminder of new life in the risen Christ.
At the end of the Easter Vigil, Fr Padraig McMahon expressed words of appreciation to all the volunteers who have played a part in Holy Week and Easter ceremonies. He wished a happy Easter to all parishioners and the peace of Easter to everyone.
