Jayden Benedict

Jayden finally got baptised last Sunday! You might wonder why Jayden Benedict in the post title? Well, the name 'Jayden' is not a saint's name, it's somewhat a new age name hehe... so we had to select a saint's name for Jayden during baptism, his name 'Benedict' can also be used next time for confirmation. I've chosen my sis as Jayden's godmother, and she has graciously selected 'Benedict' as his baptised name!

The baptism ceremony was held at Church of Divine Mercy, a very beautiful church. Father Jojo was very nice and friendly as well, making the entire occasion even more special. Jayden was very well behaved the entire morning, only fidgeted here and there when he was being carried too much hehe... And once he started crawling, he didn't want anyone to carry him!!! He was so happy crawling around the big space, his whole face just lightened up :)

There were so many other babies there being baptised too, many newborn babies as well in their christening gowns, how lovely.

Overall, it was a very meaningful and blessed day, my precious Jayden is now Jayden Benedict with love and care from God :)

So happy to see the family together to witness this special occasion of jayden's baptism. He's a gift from god and we shall guide him in the right direction.
