Mbugua "the growler" William, S.J. Fr. John "I clench my fists when I'm angry" McCarthy, S.J. Fr. Elton "the discernment origamist" Fernandes, S.J., Um, me, "boxing fanatic" O'Brien, Kevin "the hitman" Eng, esquire, And a group of more than fifty young adults from twenty parishes in nine Greater Vancouver cities... Thanks are due to St. Mark's College for being our host, the college council of the Knights of Columbus for providing lunch, and Fr. Rob Allore, S.J., pastor St. Mark's Parish for the use of the Church for Adoration and Mass... A.M.G.D. That's what this was all about.
