Rebecca is a beautiful ruddy baby girl born on March 18th, 2017 from Kingsley and Blessing, two Nigerian guys hosted by Project Itaca. Excited and happy, they asked to the priest of the parish church of Germanedo in Lecco to baptize their baby as they are practicing Catholics long before her birth. Don Alberto and the parishioners, as they saw the joy of the young couple, organized a heart-felt and engaging baptism along with a diverse refreshment to amaze the parents and their friends – there were “bellies” and children everywhere – that took part to the ceremony.
And what about the godmother? Kingsley and Blessing asked Silvia, Project Itaca’s Director of Services, to perform this important function for Rebecca’s growth. 🙂
Don Alberto involved everybody during the sermon saying that “what keeps us together, that makes the difference, is not where we come from, but that we are all Christians and we are here joined to practice that. We are joined with one aim and all of us is responsible for Rebecca’s Holy Baptism”.
