Fr. Masseo’s ministry is based on the New Evangelization St. John Paul II encouraged. Fr. Masseo, along with local rappers, produces music videos that promote faith as well as peace and non-violence. The ministry offers programs in Folklorico, ballet, tap dancing, salsa, hip-hop, fine arts, painting, and more to disadvantaged children, with a children’s dance team performing at dozens of venues a year.
