Re: Princess Adrienne's Christening
We're living in a less structured world these days, so I think any of the three would be o.k. But I would use "officiate" for this occasion. "Perform" reminds me of a musical event and "celebrate" - I think of a Mass. I've even seen the word "solemnize" in connection with a formal wedding. And I've seen priests referred to as "celebrants" when writing about a funeral.
