What is advent?

Thanks to all of those who made it to cell this weekend, you have made the discussion about advent and mass very entertaining and enriching. Hope everyone had enjoyed the side game of guessing people's birthdays!

Remember Advent is a time for preparation, to make ourselves ready for the coming of Christ, so start that out by doing an extra deed or so, because you never know, Santa will just pop out and surprise the good kids! :D

Cell: 1000 Words

Thanks to everyone who came out on Friday! Even though we didn't have Newman House, we hope everyone had a good time watching our featured presentation of the night on the "BIG" screen: A Thousand Words.

This movie starring Eddie Murphy is about a man who talks and lies too much has his life magically tied to the number of leaves of a tree; the more he talks the more leaves fall, and when leaves fall ... You know where this is going.

Words are a gift from God, but are often misused in a variety of ways by people. But when used in a positive way, even the most simplest of words such as "trust", "love" and "peace" can impact people deeply.

So next time when you talk to someone, challenge yourself to talk to someone in a meaningful way with the  least amount of words.

JUCCC Local Visit 2012

This past Saturday, QCCC played host to the JUCCC Local Visit for 2012! It was great to see everyone who managed to take time to come!

There were silly activities and lots of laughs and giggles.

Lots of walking in the good 'ole Kingstonian weather around campus ...

and in it!

Thanks so very much to all the CCCs and our wonderful speaker Dan Freeman!

A facebook album will be posted soon and keep a lookout on the QCCC group and JUCCC Local Visit group/event pages

We really can't stress how grateful we are about how everything turned out ... seriously.

And remember, propose our faith - don't impose it!

Here's links to resources from Dan's talk!


as well as RISE UP

The Summit

Last Friday we went to the Summit at St. Jame's Chapel. It was a memorable night of prayer, reflection, and beautiful singspiration. We are so glad that so many of you were able to make it! Look forward more Summits in the future and we hope that you'll join us again.
