Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish is located at Sta. Elena, Marikina City. This was where my husband and I received the sacrament of matrimony as officiated by Fr. Gerry Evarola. Many memories and firsts of my childhood years were celebrated in the four corners of this church since I was a gradeschool student of Marikina Catholic School, that’s why I was very grateful that my husband and his family agreed to have our wedding here. Of course, I wanted my wedding to take place in the church which has significance to us or either to one of us. And, with God’s grace everything fell into place and my simple wish was granted.
Recently, I went to OLA Parish requesting for my daughter’s baptismal certificate. Yes, we had her baptized there as well. And just in time, I also asked for their copy of wedding requirements so that I can share it with my readers. To all those who are planning their wedding, I hope this blog post will be of great help in your preparations.
