    Maraming Salamat Po! for posting the KORO BULAKENO and HOLY DOOR newsclipping in your Munting Nayon International Magazine.

    The Montreal Bulakenos and their sponsors greatly appreciate your posting this in the MN website. The Winnipeg and Alberta people will be kept aware and be able to attend their concerts. So are the people in the Philippines, U.S.A. and other parts of the world, who can view this website.

    You have done a great help in promoting this concert and the Philippine Community volunteers, who worked hard to bring the actors and singers to perform in Canada.

    For the Holy Door newsclipping, we hope that all persons of goodwill and Catholics in eastern Canada could visit the blessed site of NotreDame de Quebec on their 350th Anniversary, before this Holy Door is closed at the end of 2014.
