The Jesuit Music Ministry (JMM) proudly serves as the home of esteemed musical groups such as Bukas Palad, Hangad, Himig Heswita, Ateneo Chamber Singers, and the Young Voices of the Philippines. As the official music ministry of the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus, our rich heritage is rooted in the pioneering work of the late Fr. Eduardo Hontiveros, SJ. Our inspiring and soulful sound resonates in Masses and liturgical celebrations both locally and internationally.
Following in the footsteps of Fr. Eduardo Hontiveros, SJ, who embraced Vatican II’s call for active assembly participation in liturgical singing, JMM remains inspired by gifted Jesuit composers. The creative talents of Fr. Manoling Francisco SJ, Fr. Arnel Aquino SJ, Fr. Fruto Ramirez SJ, Fr. Nemy Que SJ, Fr. Charlie Cenzon SJ, Fr. Jboy Gonzales SJ, and Fr. Danny Isidro SJ have brought forth beloved Filipino liturgical songs that deeply resonate with our faith and cultural heritage.
JMM’s music is known for its soothing blend, aiming to inspire and invigorate individuals amidst the challenges of modern living. We go beyond publishing songbooks and producing music on digital platforms. Our commitment extends to conducting liturgical music workshops, organizing concerts, and sharing our musical talents in praise of the Lord and service to the Church. At the heart of JMM is our dedication to creating uplifting music that touches people’s lives and fosters a deeper connection with God through the power of music.
