Express Kumpil in Manila

st michael church

The Confirmation or Kumpil Ceremony is one of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church that is required by an individual if they wish to be married in the Catholic rites in the Philippines. Normally, this ceremony can be obtained when the parishioner reaches the age of 10 onwards but only if the person has already been Baptized in the Roman Catholic Church as a pre-requisite.

But the question is, what if you seemed to “forget” if you had undergone this Catholic ritual before? Or what if, if you really haven’t done it before? What can you do? Is it possible for an adult individual to get it rather quickly?

The answer honestly varies depending on who you’re talking to aka Parish Priest and Church. But thankfully though there’s a Catholic Church in Manila who gives “hassle-free confirmation” intended for couples who are planning to get married. Check the details below:
