Charlisse’s Baptismal Ceremony
By now you probably have read about Charlisse’s pre-ceremony activities. If not, take a look so that you can take yourself through the wonderful event in the proper order.
After preparing and Charlisse had her short playtime at Luxent Hotel, the family went over to the Our Lady of Mt Carmel Shrine for the baptismal rites. We got there much earlier than the family so we were able to take some photos of the venue.
The family and guests arrived a few minutes before the scheduled time so they had an opportunity to talk and mingle amongst themselves for a while. A lot of the guests came from Malolos, Bulacan.
By the time the ceremony had to start, all the witnesses and the family had their handy guide with them. You can see below one of the ninongs holding the guide to the rites, and the family reading into it while Charlisse looks at the camera.
And then Charlisse gets baptized with water as the sponsors and parents take the vows for her. Afterwards, she gets annointed with blessed oil as the sponsors light their candles from the Paschal candle. When all that was done, she got to wear her really pretty baptismal garments.
After the ceremony was a short photo session that we’ll be posting in the gallery. But, here’s one of the priest celebrant and the family.
After this, we’ll be posting more pics of the party that was held at Annabel’s along Tomas Morato. Lots of awesome dancing and singing there! We hope you enjoyed the photos as much as we did.
