Cardinal Tagle to baptize Tulay ng Kabataan children

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle will baptize 400 beneficiaries of the Tulay ng Kabataan Foundation on January 14, 2017 at the Manila Cathedral in Intramuros at 9 a.m.

Rev. Fr. Matthieu Dauchez, executive director of Tulay ng Kabataan Foundation will assist Cardinal Tagle in baptizing those children from the slum areas of Navotas, Tondo and Baseco.

TNK and Archdiocese of Manila are working hand in handa to bring these children closer to the Lord through the Sacrament of Baptism with the aim to eradicate the impression that poverty hinders them from receiving the grace of the different Sacraments given by God.

“When it is so difficult to bring our wounded children to God, it is, on the opposite, very easy to bring the Lord to them through the Sacraments,” Fr. Matthieu Dauchez said. Tulay ng Kabataan Foundation has been serving the poorest children of Manila since 1998. The foundation developed 4 programs aiming at giving back the dignity of street children, street children with special needs, scavenger children, and children in slums. They welcomed a total of 1,300 children in 24 centers each year and tens of thousands of children have left the street in the past 18 years.
