Filipino artists to support of Manila archdiocese projects

The Jesuit Communications Foundation is organising a concert on December 12 at the Meralco Theater to raise funds to support the various projects of the Archdiocese of Manila.

Filipino artists, who have distinguished themselves by winning awards or by being featured in top-rating shows on TV or theatre, will perform at the function dubbed Patron of the Arts.

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle has earmarked the concert’s proceeds to finance the project of providing decent social housing to the 3,000 dedicated employees of the archdiocese.

The proceeds from last year’s concert went to the repair of the Manila Cathedral.

In end November, a praise and worship concert was held in Cebu City to raise funds for quake victims and restoration of churches destroyed in Bohol earthquake.

Organized by FUEL or the Family of United and Empowered Leaders, the 8th district of the Commission on Youth of the Archdiocese of Cebu, the concert was endorsed by Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma.

Themed “Refuel your Faith: Go and make Disciples of all Nations,” the event mirrored the Catholic Church’s celebration of the Year of Faith and the recent 2013 World Youth Day celebration in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The event was a culminating activity of the Year of Faith and anniversary celebration of the National Thanksgiving Mass for San Pedro Calungsod.

Held at the Pope John XXIII Seminary football field, over 1,000 young people from parishes, schools and organization attended the event.

FUEL member-groups such as Oasis of Love Youth Ministry, Catholic Charismatic Carolinians, Youth Apostolate of Fatima, Marian Youth Cenacle Movement, Youth for Christ, and the Sacred Heart Catholic Charismatic Community presented praise and worship songs during the event.

The Cebu Diocesan Youth Coordinating Council also launched officially the 29th Local World Youth Day celebration of 2014.
