Baby Billy's Christening on March 28th

This past Saturday, we celebrated William John Yamashita-Santos' christening at CHC. He was admitted into the hospital on Friday evening due to a week-long problem of clogged plumbing. Luckily, with IV fluids and other meds, he recovered quickly and left the hospital on Sunday.
Angela and Bill decided to keep the baptism date on Saturday so we all gathered at Billy's hospital room to participate in the service. We all enthusiastically welcomed Billy to the Christian life.
Although Billy never made it to his own party, his family and friends all celebrated in style!

The christening party was held at PIC.

Immediately after Father Ryan blessed Billy with the holy water, he grinned!
Billy received the Holy Spirit and was totally at peace!

Thank you, Father Ryan, for coming to the hospital for the momentous occasion.
