If you want to give something to charity here’s a chance to be generous while enjoying a musical concert. There’s a fund raising event in Pasig City this February 18, 19 and 20 to be held at the Meralco Theater.
Here’s the invitation:
Greetings of Peace! The Missionaries of the Poor (MOP), a religious congregation of priests and brothers was founded in 1981 in Kingston, Jamaica by Fr. Richard Ho Lung. Since then, the MOP has grown rapidly and has spread to serve the poorest of the poor in Haiti, India, Kenya, Uganda and the Philippines. I served as the Superior of the MOP in the Philippines for 7 years, in 1995-1999 and as a priest in 2003-2006. Enclosed, please find a historical overview of our two mission sites in the Philippines, located in Naga and Cebu.
I am writing to humbly ask for your help and support in our upcoming fund-raising event on February 18, 19 and 20 at the Meralco Theater. “Praise Him” is a very lively and colorful musical concert that will feature highly talented singers and actors from Jamaica including Fr. Richard Ho Lung, our founder. The details of the show can be found in the enclosed flyer.
Proceeds of the concert will be used towards the building of apostolate homes and school buildings in San Andres Bukid, Manila for the destitute and abandoned children and adults with physical and mental disabilities. The construction of the apostolate home for 120 disabled children and elderly costs us around 15 million pesos. Cardinal Rosales has invited us to do this work and has given us 3000sq. meters property for this project.
The MOP is entirely dependent on God’s Providence to fulfill its mission to serve the poor. Indeed, Our Good Lord has tremendously blessed our efforts to build God’s kingdom on earth as evidenced by the continued growth and expansion of our mission work in different parts of the world.
We gladly invite you to be an integral part of our ministry to the poor and we kindly appeal to your generous hearts to help us make this building project a reality. Sharing your blessings with the least of our brothers and sisters is a powerful way of evangelizing the Good News of the Gospel in a concrete way.
Please consider supporting the construction of the Apostolate building by becoming a Sponsor AD to the OUR MOP PROJECT in San Andres Bukid. Thank you in advance for your generosity. We pray for abundant blessings upon you and your family.
Sincerely in His Service,
Fr. Charles Susai, MOP

One thought on “Praise Him musical concert”
The concert was a very nice way to learn Jamaican music and culture. The group is very gifted, especially Fr. Ho Lung who wrote most of the beautiful songs. The singers were impressive, the beat was catchy, my children enjoyed it. I’m glad my family went. We feel blessed to have watched and helped.
