Eight time world boxing champion and now Congressman Manny Pacquiao (Pacman) got the privilege to step on the grounds of the White House (WH) and reportedly had a tete-a-tete conversation with President Barrack Obama with the help of his friend Nevada Senator Harry Reid.

I thought this article would document in a way the first Filipino Mass ever performed in NY Ozone Park’s St. Mary Gates of Heaven Church’ (SMGHC), in its over 100 years of existence. SMGHC has welcomed another community to celebrate the Holy Mass in their native language, the first of which was held on December 29,2010, and the second one on February 6, 2011. It was wonderful to see all “Pinoy” parishioners flocking to the Church and celebrating the said event with some merry making and food to share after the Mass.
