Renewal for a New Year

What better way to start the night off with a paper bag of QCCC love? Cookies for everyone! 

As we unfold into the New Year, we learned about St. John the Baptist and reminded ourselves the meaning behind Baptism. Baptism is the first Sacrament we receive and is a symbol of renewal, cleansing, and peace. It is important to be reminded of this Blessed Sacrament frequently because through our Baptismal vows, we get closer to God. As Catholics, we are called to live each day sharing Jesus’ love with others. God picked us each by hand to enter His family, and it is our role to make this large family grow by strengthening our relationship with everyone we encounter on our faith journey.

As Singspiration ended with us “trading our sorrows” and “trading our sickness”, we traded all that bad stuff for a pleasant birthday surprise. We surprised our Supreme Leader Janice with the ultimate combination: mocha cake, with iced mocha to drink, and a lot of QCCC love. Our very first QCCC gif was also born on this very special day.

We somehow ended the night with a very long and intense conversation about all the awesome TV shows and Disney movies we watched as kids. 

Brings a tear to my eye… :’)
