Sri Lankan Churches Conduct First Sunday Mass After Easter Bombings

The Easter Sunday Terror attack in Sri Lanka was terrifying enough to break the hopes and hearts of a peaceful survival for many natives of the island nation. The attack that killed more than 250 people and left dozens of others wounded is not something that is impossible to repeat.

The fact that one goes to a place of worship for obtaining peace is no more true, as people are mostly petrified to enter any major place of worship. They do not know when they can be victims of the terror attack and end over losing their lives.

However, that does not stop the faith and believes of people and prevent them from entering the mosques or churches. Sri Lanka is putting the best of its efforts to bring the situation of fear and panic to normal and this is one such move made by the Church. Following the Easter Sunday attack, various Churches in the country conducted the first Sunday mass since the attack including Negombo and Colombo, the capital of the country.

This time there was security personnel as well guarding the entrances of the St. Lucia Cathedral located in Colombo. Several worshippers flocked the church and that also included some of the family members of the victims who lost their lives.

The Islamist States terrorist organization took responsibility for the attack however; the massacre is believed to have been carried out by the local extremist group National ThowheedJamath.

Following the devastating attacks, all type of church activities were canceled all over the country and once again the services of the church have resumed and are expected to be carried out as scheduled.
