Welcome to the Family

♫ Welcome to the family
We’re glad that you have come
To share your life with us
As we grow in love
And may we always be to you
What God would have us be
A family always thereTo be strong and to lean on ♫

The beginning of the school year is an especially exciting time for QCCC. We get the chance to reconnect with our QCCC family and welcome new brothers and sisters into our very special community. As a bonus, the delicious curry fishball tradition is kept alive every first cell of the year, attracting people from all across campus.

The lyrics of the song "Welcome to the Family" is an excellent summary of what the QCCC family is all about. QCCC is very special because we truly rely on one another during our time here at Queen's. Our relationships with one another are strengthened through our common goal of discovering ourselves and our faith. Flooded by His blessings, we grow to love one another more each day, and soon discover that there will always be people beside us to lean on.

To our new family members, QCCC is very blessed to have you join us as we walk our journey of faith together. May God fill your hearts with peace and many blessings.

QCCC 藉他的愛Set the World on Fire!

The Eastern Canadian Chinese Catholic Living Camp (ECCCLC), often known as Ga Tung (GT, 加東) is the the main annual highlight of young Chinese Catholics living in Ontario and Montreal. This year, QCCC had a great turnout at the camp, and we had our own Oil Thigh photo to prove it. 

The theme of this year's GT is "藉他的愛Set the World on Fire". Through talks given by our awesome speaker, Brother Edmund Lo, and various reflections and activities, we discovered how to listen and discern God's voice through the Examen prayer and Ignatian Contemplation, make sound decisions and actions, and live a healthy Catholic lifestyle as witness of our Faith.

QCCC is glad to see the immense dedication that the Chinese youth have put into their faith. Our own members were involved in roles such as liturgy, house team, music and media. Kudos to one of our alumni, Mikey, for being the guitarist for the two campfire nights!

Our own chaplain, Father Raymond, even made a guest appearance during one of the mornings. He had much praise to express in his latest article in the Catholic Register which you can read here .

We hope everyone had a great time at GT and had a great summer. We hope to see all of you back at Newman House starting this upcoming Friday! Three cheers to curry fishballs!
