Holy Union at Tagaytay City – January 14, 2012

We want to praise God for the blessing and the honor of uniting this beautiful couple. This marks the 41st Holy Union Rite done by our church for the GLBTI community in the Philippines. Every Holy Union is a proclamation of Marriage Equality in our country.  International Human Rights Law “Yogyakarta Principles” have already declared that “Every Human Beings has the right to found a family regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity” – Yogyakarta Principle 24

This couple went all the way from Leyte to Malaysia then from Malaysia to Manila just to have a very intimate and private holy union. We apologize but we have to edit their photos for their security. We ended the Holy Union with so much fun as former IPL Art Ventayen is one of the witnesses to the said occasion. Congratulations to the both of you.

We ended the year with LOVE – 15th Holy Union for CUC in the Philippines

DECEMBER 30, 2010 – Marked the 15th Holy Union for CUC in the Philippines.  A couple wanted to start their new year by being united in this Rite of Holy Union.  We praise God that our church ended the year with love and we are looking forward for 2011 with another year filled with love.  In this Holy Union ceremony we make it a point to educate the couple about the Bible and sexuality and also we educate their families and witnesses about discrimination and how to understand the Holy Union.  We also take this opportunity to promote our Church and our Denomination so that more people will know who we are and how accepting and affirming our church and denomination is.  Praise God.

May the blessings of God be upon them, in Jesus name.
