Competitions bring the best out of us. They are also an effective way to develop camaraderie, industriousness, collegiality and team spirit. Quiz competitions are an effective way not only to polish our competition skill, but also to acquire knowledge. To provide an avenue to showcase the knowledge and spirit of competition of the parishioners, Angelore Youth Movement in collaboration with the Bible Commission conducted Bible Quiz Competition on 17th September 2023. Rev. Fr Anil Ivan Fernandes, Director of Canara Communications was the quiz master.

Fr Gerald Pinto, Vice President of the Parish Pastoral Council Mr. Paul Rodrigues, Secretary of the Parish Pastoral Council Mrs. Lolina DSouza, Coordinator of 21 Pastoral Commissions Ms. Renita Menezes, and AYM animator Mrs. Sylvia DSouza the event unfolded seamlessly.
