EASTER MESSAGE FROM THE ETHNIC RELATIONS COMMISSION

April 1 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

The Ethnic Relations Commission, (ERC), extends Easter greetings to all Christians and fellow Guyanese at home and the diaspora.

Easter is traditionally known as a time when Guyanese truly come together, especially in kite-flying and at social gatherings. Easter befits the true spirit of our national observances which continue to foster togetherness of our peoples from many cultures.

The significance of the resurrection is an inspirational turning point and offers mankind the universal message that there is always hope for a new beginning in the face of adversity. It brings comfort and motivation for the path to continuity even in what may be seen as the end.

As the kites of different colours and sizes soar and buzz high in the skies once more, let it symbolize our collective and sustained efforts in rising to the challenges to remove barriers of misunderstanding and prejudice.

Let the significance of the occasion of Easter guide us to renew our commitment to individually and collectively endeavor to build on the strides made in the fostering of tolerance and respect.

The Commission urges Guyanese to ensure that the true significance and message of Easter remain alive and its religious teachings inspire us to promote harmony and good relations across our dear land.

Peace and fellowship for the Easter holidays!
