Hello once again! I am now back in Edmonton and have started a new semester here. My Christmas & New Year was great – I was in Saskatoon for a few days helping to get CCO’s Soul Snack website up and running after an outage. I then went back to Nipawin for a few days… I spent Christmas there, played some hockey on our rink, and played a whole lot of Clue. Then, on the 27th I headed back to Saskatoon to get ready for the amazing CCO Rise Up conference. It was a great time where over 300 university-aged people from across Canada (and a few from elsewhere) came together at the Delta Bessborough in Saskatoon to hear motivating talks, praise the Lord in song, have daily Mass, attend workshops, pray at the University of Saskatchewan campus, experience a wonderful celebration of the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God at a packed St. Paul’s Cathedral, and go through the past 15 years of CCO at a great banquet. I also was able to help with the liturgies (serving, etc.) and they even let me play with the sound board… switches and thingys :-). So, I didn’t get much sleep and was pretty busy but it was a good sort of busy.
Now I am back. This semester, I’m studying: theological anthropology, moral theology, early Church history, intro. to the Old Testament, and Christianity & world religions. Should be fun! Oh, and I’m also helping out at the Holy Family Parish Life Teen in St. Albert.
Gotta run… ttyl!
