Father Ho Lung & Friends (FHF) is the music-arm of the Missionaries of the Poor (MOP), a lay Religious Institute of Brothers of Pontifical Right dedicated particularly to the corporal works of mercy to the least irrespective of creed, caste, race, nationality and culture. It was founded in the slums of Kingston, Jamaica in 1981 by Fr. Richard Ho Lung, formerly a Jesuit priest and a university professor. Its work is to conduct centers for the homeless and the abandoned in the ghettos and slums or among the poorest of peoples. At present, the Missionaries of the Poor serve in 13 dioceses worldwide and run 24 centers for the homeless and the abandoned in such countries as Jamaica, East Timor, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Kenya, the Philippines, Uganda and the US. FHF preceded the Missionaries of the Poor by some 12 years—founded by the same Fr Richard Ho Lung—and is integral to the latter’s life and ministry to the least of our brothers and sisters. The group is made up of some of Jamaica’s finest singers, actors, dancers and musicians who offer their talent and time free of charge in service of the Gospel and the poor. “Praise Him !” is a concert that puts together different songs of praise in Jamaican and Caribbean rhythms like reggae, calypso and mento and celebrates our being sons and daughters of God, called by our name. This particular concert at St. Joseph Parish will be March 16, 2019. Proceeds are in aid of our various ministries around the world which serve more than 30,000 people on an annual basis.
