Cleaning, Jesus and Zombies (In reverse order!)

I hope all of you had a great weekend!

Thanks for those that popped by for some fun games like Taboo on Friday night! For those that wanted to watch the video that wrapped around with our discussion about Halloween, All Saints day and purgatory.

Also massive props to those who went on to Prison Visit on Saturday and helped with the Newman House cleanup event! The chapel is a lot shinier than before!

Movie night!

This Friday, QCCC spent some quality time with Fr. Barron in the Catholicism Series: A Vast Company of Witnesses, The Communion of Saints! We learned about the lives of many saints including Mother Teresa, Katherine Drexel, Edith Stein, and St. Therese de Lisieux, and also had a wonderful discussion about the process of canonization, miracles, and the ties between science and religion. Did we mention we had lots of popcorn and snacks?

Peanut Butter x Batman: Seeing the Christ Archetype in Popular Culture

People were confuzzled when we sent out our weekly email... what does peanut butter have to do with Batman?!

For those that came to cell last Friday, we played the Peanut Butter River game and watch some Batman movie clips. Sweet! Not to mention, we tied it all together with Fr. Robert Barron's response to the Christ archetype in media as the "Hero who saves." It is clear that we see Batman as the hero of Gotham, but a closer look at the themes of the movie point to a greater analogy, Jesus as the saviour of the world!

Missed out on cell this week? Don't fret! Here are the links to the videos that were watched and of course, a glimpse of what went down during our activity in our pictures.
