“Easter is a time of renewal of our faith and a new beginning toward a life filled with love and respect,” the mayor said in his Good Friday and Easter Sunday message to the resident and visitors of Saipan.

He said everyone should aspire for peace, understanding, respect, perseverance, humility and love.

“We have come a long way, despite the chaotic and very difficult period everyone went through as we picked up the pieces after Super Typhoon Soudelor and Super Typhoon Yutu.

“We are here today because of our commitment to each other to lend a helping hand to those who dearly need it.”

Apatag said on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, “we should all come together and strengthen the bonds that hold us together as a caring and loving community, and promise to continue such commitment.”

“Have a very safe and blessed Easter weekend as you celebrate with your loved ones,” he added.
