Catholic Students Association Grad 2013
This year's 2013 Catholic Student's Grad Banquet was held at Holy Cross Parish Centre in Victoria. Each year this wonderful event is held to honour the members of the CSA who are graduating from the University of Victoria.
There are eight graduates this year with over 40 other students and alumni who attended the dinner and dance. It was a wonderful, classy affair with the opportunity for everyone to get dressed up to honour the Grads.
Each Grad was given an opportunity to say a few words about what it was like to live their Faith on campus while participating in various faculties and organizations.
Over the years I have greatly enjoyed meeting these young adults who live their Faith with joy and openness. There are a huge variety of academic disciplines represented by these young adults and I always learn a great deal from them.
After the banquet there was a dance where the students were given lessons in "swing" dancing—I felt a little nostalgic when I heard this and was surprised that " swing" is making a come back after 60 years!
