Many poor families are discouraged from taking part in religious rites because they can’t afford to provide the feast that is expected afterwards.

The Tulay ng Kabataan Foundation (TNK), which is affiliated with the Catholic Church, therefore conducted its fifth mass baptism at Manila Cathedral on January 14, and all families that took part were given lunch afterwards.
