Baptism Ceremony at Christ The King (Greenmeadows)

Christ The King Parish Church at Greenmeadows is one of the most popular christening venues among residents of Quezon City and Pasig City. Aside from it's location which is near Libis where rows of restaurants offer bapstismal reception, Christ The King Church also has a huge parking area.

I would say this church is for parents who can afford a more expensive baptism ceremony. The location of the church itself in the posh Greenmeadows somehow foretells the fee for the ceremony which is pegged at Php600.00 for the first pair of sponsors. Additional sponsor is charged Php50.00 per head. This is for MASS baptism and is held every Sunday at 10 o'clock in the morning only.

For those who wants a solo baptism (which is what I will recommend), there is now a separate room for this called a Baptistry.
 
Back in 2006 when our eldest was baptized at Christ The King, solo baptism was available only to those who can bring their own priest and have the ceremony held on weekdays. We had no choice but to get the mass baptism where the whole ceremony was unorganized and quite in chaos because the officiating priest chose to stand at the altar and have the children brought there for the rites instead of going around. So imagine the horror for those with an army of godparents! The next candidate for baptism was already at the altar while the godparents of the previous child are still trying to make their way back. There was only 1 assistant too and nobody was guiding parents/godparents for the rites and keeping order.

Solo or special baptisms are held Mondays to Sundays except holidays for the fee of Php3,200. They require 50% non-refundable down payment for you to nail the date and time of the ceremony (9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm).
 
Requirements are as follows:
 
1. Photocopy and Original copies of Registered Birth Certificate
2. Photocopy and Original copies of Marriage Certificate of parents
3. Attire: Baptismal clothes and white cap.
4. Bring your own candle!
