QCCC Goes to JU Local Visit 2015!

On Saturday, November 14th, several QCCC members made the journey to downtown Toronto for the annual JU local visit. This year, the event is hosted by UTCCC at the University of Toronto, St. George Campus. The overall turnout for all CCCs was 60, the biggest in many years. It was a great time for members to network and forge friendships with people from other CCCs. It was also an occasion to reflect on issues in our faith.

As such, the theme this year was Laudato Si, the second encyclical of Pope Francis, which discusses environmental degradation and strategies for mitigation. The guest speaker was Father Chris Cauchi, the chaplain for the Newman Centre in Toronto.

No local visit would be complete without a Singspiration session, as well as a sharing session by our recently-minted GT 2016 committee.

Of course, there were group photographs and selfies as well.

And after mass, we all had a fantastic Korean dinner at the Seor Ak San restaurant.

And how could you forget about the Squirrels of Toronto? Cuter and a lot more sociable than the ones in Kingston.
"One day I was walking across the field and I saw this huge pine nut. I ran towards it, only for it to be snatched away by my brother. Jokes on him, I found an even bigger one today and I've got to say that it's really tasty."
