LOOK: Candy Pangilinan’s Son Becomes an Altar Boy for the First Time

On her latest vlog, the comedian and super mom shares the profound moment when Quentin went to the Church for the first time as an altar boy.

It takes skills, patience, and guts to be a parent. Every child is unique and there’s no instruction or manual a parent can get to try and figure out what works best for their child. This is what comedian and super mom Candy Pangilinan, whose son Quentin was diagnosed with autism when he was only a toddler, can attest to.

For Candy, having a special child has been a wonderful journey of learning and realizing her potentials. “Feeling ko, because of the need to be able to support Quentin, ang daming talent na lumalabas po sa akin,” she once said in an interview.  

Candy chronicles her journey with her son Quentin in her recently launched book, Mommy Dear: Our Special Love. In it, the actress opens up about the challenges and joys of parenting a child with special needs, and highlights the importance of love and support from the people around her.

In God’s Service

Despite being a single mom, Candy was able to raise Quentin in a supportive and loving environment. Not only that, but the mother-and-son duo has also developed a strong faith in God despite the challenges they have been through. They are reportedly very active and involved in their church, and recently, for the first time, Quentin has become an altar boy at the San Isidro Labrador Church in Antipolo!
