#My Baachan 43. Baptism

Baptism.png

My Baachan got baptized in the Japanese United Church in the year she moved to Toronto, so I guess she was committed. I wonder if they usually use these certificates for babies, because it seems a little odd for them to list her mother and father, when she herself was already a grandmother by this time.

Iā€™m not exactly sure, but the signature of the minister looks like K Shimizu. A Kosaburo Shimizu had been a minister in the Japanese United Church back in the 1920s in Vancouver and after the war in Toronto.
