Dylan's Baptism Day
14th December 2003

This was my BIG day of Baptism,
in a small village of Merces, in Goa.  

This is exactly where Grandpa was baptised and brought up 
when he was young boy, hence we chose this beautiful church!

I am blessed with prayers and I managed to behave so well!!

Aunty Maria holds the beautiful, decorated candle for me
