Wedding Planning Adventure : Sacrament of Confirmation (Kumpil)


I knew where I got baptized, San Agustin Church in Intramuros Manila and I assumed that I got confirmed at the same Church those days a child could get baptized and confirmed at the same time so I didn't even bother looking for the certificate although I knew I saw it somewhere but I just can't recall where hahahaha.. 

Anyways, now that I am getting married and one of the requirements is a copy of the confirmation certificate with an annotation of for wedding purpose only.. so my dilemma starts :-(

All our certificates are in Laguna my mothers hometown and I dont have any intention of rummaging through her things.. It's going to be an emotional task for me been missing Mommy nowadays especially if I need to make any decision with my wedding preps so going to Laguna to find my confirmation certificate is a big NO!!

Jowanness  has also not received the sacrament of confirmation so we decided that we do it together.

With my every trusty lappy... ask Google and GT forum and I shall have answers hahahahha

So here is what I found.
