Apart from the Catholic church, Father Jonas Mejares has two great passions - basketball and singing.
At five foot three, Father Jonas Mejares readily admits that his chances of being a professional basketball player were always going to be a challenge.
But no such barrier exists for his singing, for which he is known across the Philippines as the "singing Augustinian priest".
