Filed under: Diocesan News |

NAGA City, August 21, 2013—The college of La Consolacion in Iriga was hailed regional champion in a recently concluded 4th National Bible Quiz by the Society of St. Paul. 

Other winners include the Dominican School of Calabanga, which won third place and the Ateneo de Naga University- High School, which took the second place. 

As regional champion, La Consolacion College received a cash gift of P5,000.00. 

Aside from cash gift, the LCC team will be given free transportation and accommodation in Manila when they go for the Battle of the Champions on September 14. 

The championship will be held during the Manila International Book Fair at Mall of Asia’s SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. 

It was the first time the Society of St. Paul included the Bicol Region in the contest since the Bible Quiz was established four years ago. 

Seventeen teams joined the elimination round last August 17 at the Xavier Hall of the Ateneo de Naga University from 12 participating schools. 

The teams were further reduced to nine which competed for the regional finals held the next day at the SM City Activity Center. 

Fr. Gil Alinsangan, SSP, Fr. Enrico Paglinawan and Sr. Lourdes Ranara, FSP comprised the Team of Judges for the said event. Bro. Albert Garong, SSP and Kikay of MOR served as emcees.  

The annual Bible Quiz is part of the Biblical Apostolate of the Society of St. Paul. It aims to encourage young people to read and study the Bible and incarnate the Word more fully in their lives. It also provides young people the opportunity to meet youngsters from other schools and win valuable prizes. (Sr. Lou Ranara, FSP)
