Lent Contest Winners!

By Michael J. McKay, S.T.D.

Congratulations to the boys who participated this Lenten season! The top award of $100 goes to Tim Haynes’ Conquest Holy Redeemer – Pickering, Ontario Junior group who scored 905 games at 82.2% accuracy scoring over 7,800 CQ-IQ points. Ethan was their high scoring star. He even took on 697 questions in the Church History category that really challenged him. But, he made up for lost ground when it came to the God category. He seemed to have God’s number by scoring 99.7% accuracy on questions About God (though they were mostly at Level 1). The Holy Redeemer group did outstanding and Ethan is a real gamer!  

Congratulations also to the other Conquest leaders who encouraged their boys to play: Victor Rodriguez’ Conquest Kansas City North Father & Son group and his son, Felipe,  did a good job especially in the area of the Old and New Testament. Jason in Victor’s Junior group did well too on the Lives of the Saints.  

David Hood’s St. John Brebeuf – Winnipeg Junior group participated with his son, Andrew, doing well in the area of Scripture at 77.1% accuracy rate. 

Tim Burke’s Conquest Holy Spirit – Brighton, MI Junior and Father-Son groups played. Joseph scored over half of his Q&A in the Scripture area at 80% accuracy rate! Conner and Patrick covered Liturgy and Sacraments as well as Scripture, Saints and God. You all did great!
