On Friday, November 18, 2016, the MYP hosted GameNight at St. Mel’s Church. Fourteen teens participated in popular games with Catholic themes: Wheel of Fortune, Pictionary, password & Mad Gab. The teems were paired off to work together to compete in each of these games. After a talk by Tom Leavens & a small group meeting, the night concluded with a Prayer Service. Gary McComiskey rectored the event, & was supported by team members Jennifer McComiskey, Megan McComiskey & Diana Roach.
The theme of the talk & discussion was, “Unity Among Division: We live in divisive times. By embracing the value of differing perspectives, we can build a harmonious world.” For the Prayer Service, the teens were asked to complete a petition slip reading, “Lord, help me to embrace unity by __________.” This event was fun & challenging for our teens, especially in terms of how our world is after the recent Presidential election.
