19 July 2007. One of the busiest months in the life of people in JMM is July. This month, we have two concerts: Hangad’s acapella and Himig Heswita’s Healing Concerts. Himig Heswita’s healing concerts on July 20 & 22 at the Cardinal Sin Center of Loyola School of Theology have been sold out. Since the events are for the sick, we expect all sorts of people suffering different ailments. Many of them are terminally ill. In this month’s concert we bid Fr. Arnel Aquino goodbye, before he leaves for special studies in the US. Here is the night before the first concert at 730 PM.
