The event featured Ms. Joey Albert with special participation of MMHC Priests and Seminarians, CCC Talents, Msgr. Arnel F. Lagarejos and Bp. Camilo Gregorio, D.D. for the benefit of CCC Scholars and Marian Missionaries of the Holy Cross (MMHC) Seminary.

A Thanksgiving mass was held led by Fr. Blaise and Fr. Matthew concelebrated with Bp. Gregorio, Fr. Christian "Toots" Buenafe, OCarm., our Parish Priest, Fr. Neil Vincent Tacbas and the MMHC Priests. Concert followed with an opening choral performance of CCC Children's Chorale. Then, Ms. Joey Albert delighted the audience singing 70's and 80's hits and the Manila sound. She gave a stunning performance with a duet with our Music teacher, Mr. Arman de Leon singing "The Prayer". She also sang with Bp. Camilo Gregorio, D.D. while the bishop was playing the piano and followed his piano performance. She also sang with MMHC Priests and Seminarians singing a MMHC original composition. The audience quivered in delight when she gave another duet with Msgr. Arnel F. Lagarejos and followed Msgr. Arnel's song number. The evening ended singing her greatest hit songs; "I remember the boy" and "Tell me".
