BIS #6747 Marian Quiz at Kapadvanj

By Fr Ashwin Macwan for BISMumbai

As part of the Marian Month and to commemorate the solemnity of Assumption, the '18th Marian Quiz Competition' was organized on Saturday 13 August 2022, at AmrutDhara-Don Bosco Animation Centre Kapadvanj, for the Catholic students of the Diocese and Salesian houses of Gujarat.

The programme began with a well-animated prayer service, after which Fr Pratap Damor, the Rector, welcomed one and all. The guests of honour were invited to light the lamp symbolizing the presence of God in the midst of the gathering. Then, Fr Thomas Chalissery gave a beautiful message on our Mother Mary to all present.

The quiz had a total of 10 rounds: most of the questions and puzzles were sourced from the Bible. Fr Ashwin Macwan was the Quiz Master for the event. Each team consisted of 03 members, who were given the questions a month before the event. A total of 05 teams from various parishes participated in the Quiz Competition. All participants prepared well and were accompanied by their animators. At the end of the Quiz, Don Bosco, Kawant, won the first prize; Sacred Heart Parish, Vadtal, came second, while Don Bosco, Dakor, got the third prize.

Fr Macwan told the students that the quiz was only a medium to know more about Jesus through Mary. Fr Edwin Fernandes, the Assistant Parish Priest of Nadiad remarked, "The quiz was well planned and creatively organized. Kudos to the AmrutDhara team."

Fr Macwan thanked the Salesian community, SYM youth, participants and the auxiliary staff for their hard work. All were filled with gratitude for the knowledge they have gained by being part of this Marian Quiz competition.
