St. Peter Chapels takes one step further in carrying out its mission of genuine service to the Filipino people. Continuing the commitment of helping our fellowmen which was started by our founder- Francisco “Tatay” M. Bautista, St. Peter Chapels offers FREE MEMORIAL SERVICE TO INFANTS (currently 3 months old and under). This was Tatay’s original idea. The free service includes pull-out of the cadaver from the residence, morgue or hospital as the case may be, embalming, casket, viewing for 3 days-wake, and use of hearse during interment.
The loss of one’s child is extremely and emotionally difficult for parents to bear. Apart from the financial responsibility is the emotional distress brought about by losing someone you love. As DeathCare Experts, we hope to emphatize with the pain of parents who mourn the loss of their little angels by taking the financial responsibility off their shoulders. We give them the memorial service for free.
One of our recipients of this program was Little Angel Charlie Jade Luna. She was the first born of Mr. Darwin and Ms. Jhonelle Luna and was only one-day old when she passed away last May 29, 2007 due to Anencephaly, a condition where the head fails to close usually between the 23rd and 26th day of pregnancy, resulting in the absence of a major portion of the brain, skull, and scalp. The father, only 23 years old and working as a jeepney driver, worried so much with his wife who is just 21 years old and a Sales Clerk at SM City Fairview, on how they will be able to provide a decent burial for their child. That is why they were very thankful that when the unexpected death of their child happened, St. Peter Chapels was ready to provide them with a Free Memorial Service. For them, words could not express how grateful they felt for the free memorial service which provided by St. Peter Chapels for their little angel.
As DeathCare Experts, we provide our fellowmen with world-class DeathCare services. As responsible Filipino citizens we are extending our duty to doing something beyond what is expected of us and that is reaching out to our fellowmen in their times of need. Seeing the grateful faces of those people we have helped in our own simple ways is something really worthwhile.
