Family Feud!

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Kingston, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny...

Team Lightbulb and Team Rocket participated in
a heated game of Family Feud as they showed off their general and Biblical knowledge. Turns out some of the "most common" answers aren't the ones we expect!  The game quickly escalated as opposing teams stole points from the other team, up until the very end. The two teams finished close, but Team Rocket took home the winning title with only fifty points more. This fun-filled activity reveals to us that we may not know the Bible as much as we do, or perhaps we are a bit rusty and need to catch up on some readings. It is important for us to understand the messages of the Bible, because we often need to defend our faith, share with others God's love, and talk to those who are on sitting on the fence of their faith.

We were also very fortunate to have an alumnus visit us and join us for cell! We invited Paul Tam to share with us the ongoing issues the Chinese Catholic Evangelization Ministry is facing. We continue to pray for a peaceful resolution between the Catholic ministries in Toronto.

The life of St. Thomas Aquinas was presented through a game of Pictionary. With the solved puzzles, we put together bits of information to form the story of this saint who devoted his entire life to God. He was an intellect and one of the most well known philosopher and theologian of his time. St. Thomas Aquinas is known as the "Angelic Doctor" (not a medical doctor, but a Ph.D) of the Church because of his influential teachings and writings about God. As exam season is quickly approaching, we ask for this patron saint of all students and universities to pray for our studies.
