We’re all set for Gwen’s christening on Saturday. It will be held at Malate Church, the church is close to my heart because this is also the church where I was baptized. Too bad they only have communal baptism, we wanted a special baptism but I guess it doesn’t matter. I would have wanted to make her baptism extra special by looking for caterers, special venue, unique souvenirs, etc. but due to time constraints, I settled for a Christening package at Max’s restaurant. Aside from the food, package also includes the cake, invites, balloons and free use of venue for 2 hours. The package also includes 25 pcs. cookies souvenirs but I opted to add my own give-aways that’s why I’m searching over Multiply right now.
For those who want to have their child’s baptism at Malate Church, here are the requirements:
- Photocopy of child’s Birth Certificate duly registered at the City Hall or NSO.
- Registration form which you can download here
- Registration fee is Php 250
- Parents MUST attend the seminar at 5 PM held every Friday or Saturday before the baby’s baptism
I suggest going to Malate Church at Friday or Saturday at 4 pm for the registration and continue with the seminar afterwards.
I’m excited for Gwen’s baptism, I already bought her dress and of course mine too! I’d like to shop for new shoes though as I can’t wear the new womens boots I bought in HK.
