Crown of Roses

In honour of October being the Month of the Rosary, we decided to do a feature cell on our dearest Mother Mary last week.

For the first activity, we had to piece together parts of sentences of various special facts about Mary. Fun fact: If you didn't know, The Immaculate Conception refers to Mary herself, and not the conception of Jesus!

Deep in thought....

*promo for our cool sweaters*

After our 'puzzling' activity, we shared our personal anecdotes about what the rosary meant to us, and connected over the joys of praying the rosary. For the past week, our live it out challenge was to pray the rosary, and to ponder on how our relationship with Mary helps us grow closer to God.

Since we had a cell that focused on Mary and the Rosary, this week we're focusing on All Saints Day as it will be celebrated on November 1st. So, come join us tomorrow night at 7PM, for a night "All About Them Saints"! ;)

QCCC Social: Homecoming Concert!

For Homecoming 2016, we decided to do something a little different for cell. Dan School of Drama and Music held a Showcase Concert at the BEAUTIFUL Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, so we decided to have our first QCCC Social Night of the year by enjoying classy performances by our talented peers. 

As the Isabel is situated by the lake, we had a spectacular view to start off the night....

And inside, it looked a little bit like this....

Okay, it actually looked like this....

Isn't it absolutely gorgeous?! We're definitely going to come back sometime....
As an added bonus, the Symphony Ensemble ended off the night with an orchestral arrangement of..... the Oil Thigh! Hope everyone enjoyed homecoming as much as we did!

Come join us for our next cell, this Friday at 7PM, at our usual spot! See you then! ;)

Miracles on 192 Frontenac St.

This week, we decided to journey back in time to a time when miracles occurred! 

For the first activity, we sorted definitions about miracles in order of most to least importance and watched testimonial videos on people who had experienced miracles in their lives. The next semi-physical activity of the night required our members to choose sides of the room depending whether we think certain situations and scenarios (given on the little sheets of paper) are miracles.

Hilarious conversations and reasonings came up, and we all got to learn more about what it means for an event to be considered as a miracle!

As per our weekly cell tradition, we ended off the night with lovely singing from our members!

It's crazy to think that next week is already Week 5 of the school year, and we've only just started to settle in. Unfortunately we do not have a cell for this Friday, as Thanksgiving is around the corner... but we'll definitely be around NEXT Friday. Come visit us then! :)

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving from our little QCCC family!

Always thankful for the support and the love.
