Dingdong Dantes Fans Who Meet Him In Person Ask For His Blessing Like He's A Real Priest Because Of 'Pari 'Koy'

DINGDONG DANTES is amazed at the impact of his role as Father Kokoy in the hit soap "Pari 'Koy" as people who see him in public now address as Pari 'Koy. "Some kids even ask me to bless them," he says.
This week, the show tackles the significance of being baptized. The boy Pinggoy (played by David Remo) turns out to be unbaptized because he is a neglected orphan so he asks Pari 'Koy to baptize him and get him his own ninong and ninang.It turns out that many children in Barangay Pinagpala remains unbaptized so Pari 'Koy explains to them what the sacrament of baptism signifies in the holy church.

But the hypocritical ladies of the church led by Chanda Romero as Madam Martha are against Pari 'Koy's idea of giving free christening to kids whose parents are immoral. Pari 'Koy disregards their opposition and goes on with the baptismal rites. The hypocrites turn off the electricity in the church, but Pari 'Koy remains unfazed and continues administering this important rite of the church since this grace of God is not just for the rich who can afford to pay for it but for everyone who wants to be a baptized Christian.
