Filipino Martyrs Celebration #Reception

After the mass for the Filipino martyr celebration, came the reception at St. Joseph Gymnasium.  Here are some  photos I snapped right before  the  meals were served.  A friend's daughter whom we used to take care of when she was still a baby  is getting bigger.  We seldom see her but she still recognize us which is really nice.



The St. Joseph  Children Choir  sang the song  that was personally picked by the priest, "Light Your Candle" before  dinner.

It's nice to see familiar faces that day.  I seldom attend to Filipino parties so it was quite a treat to see  them.


Most of the Filipinos came in traditional clothing except me. I will be posting more photos  when I have time.
