Baptism Express {format} 5:20 Queena Kim

Every Saturday, hundreds of Latino immigrants pilgrimage to Our Lady The Queen of the Angels, Los Angeles' oldest mission Church, to get their baby's baptized. The Church baptizes fifty babies an hour -- more than three hundred every Saturday. Unlike other churches, Our Lady doesn't require parents or godparents to take classes beforehand. All you do is sign-up. Abel Salas walks us through "the McDonald's of Baptism."
