Weekly Game Night

Join us any and all Wednesdays at 7:30 pm for a Zoom Game Night! Games may include Clue, Scattergories, Family Feud, Bible Trivia, Boggle, Mad Libs or something else! We suggest you use a computer (though you can use a phone), bring a notebook and a writing utensil, and know where your dice are! This will be a reoccurring event until further notice.

NO GAME NIGHT 7/22 OR 7/29. My apologies.

May 2nd, 2pm: First Virtual Game Day!

Your votes are in – the majority of the responses were for a weekend afternoon, so our first Virtual Game Day is on May 2nd at 2pm! We will be using Zoom to meet (see bottom of page for link). Please RSVP by emailing ICCYoungAdultsThrive@gmail.com or through Facebook.

We’ll be playing Clue or Scattegories (or both) depending on how many people we have – Clue can only take 10 players, Scattegories can take unlimited. I suggest you grab 2 dice (for Clue), a notebook and a pen (for both), and that you use something with a bigger screen than a phone.

Basic rules for Clue: https://www.cs.nmsu.edu/~kcrumpto/TAClasses/ClueRules.html
Virtual differences: I have added extra parts to the game so more people can play. We’ll use notebooks instead of the fancy Clue pads to write on.

Basic rules for Scattergories (scroll down to Game Play): https://www.ultraboardgames.com/scattergories/game-rules.php
Virtual differences: I will project the category lists onto the screen, and we’ll use our notebooks instead of the Scattergories paper to write on.

Thrive update for the Triduum

I hope all is well! Seems like forever since I’ve seen you all! I first want to wish you a blessed Holy Week, and to let you know I’m working on a virtual game night! More details on that next week after I’ve tested some stuff. Let me know if a weeknight or weekend works best for you! Now, on to the Triduum!

Here is the schedule at IC – https://iccnashuanh.org/. Whether or not you virtually attend here or somewhere else, I strongly encourage you to attend the liturgy of Holy Thursday and Good Friday as well as Easter. The one good thing about things being done virtually is that you can attend whenever it works for you, even if you have to work while it’s being filmed/livestreamed.

I know it’s gonna be weird not attending in person, and there are so many opportunities that we don’t have this year, but I’d like to make some suggestions for each day of the Triduum.

Holy Thursday

  • Participate in a liturgy
  • Venerate a cross, whether it’s the cross on your wall or the cross on your rosary
  • “Stay here and keep watch with me” – see if you can go to a church (or better yet, to Adoration) to watch and pray with Jesus for an hour, as He asked His disciples to do. If you cannot, at least try at home.
  • Pray the Stations of the Cross, the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary and/or the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Directions for and videos of each may be found online.

Good Friday

  • Participate in a liturgy
  • Keep watch at the Cross and/or the Tomb like Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons, whether it’s at a church or reflecting prayerfully on the Gospel and/or on an image..
  • Pray the Stations of the Cross, the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary and/or the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Directions for and videos of each may be found online.
  • Sing or listen to appropriate music, such as Stabat Mater/At The Cross Her Station Keeping, Via Dolorosa, Were You There, and Worthy is the Lamb (by Hillsong)
  • Limit your electronic use, for Good Friday is a day of fasting and prayer
  • If possible, consider maintaining a silence between the hours of noon and 3, the time during which Jesus hung on the cross
  • If you have not been able to make it to confession this Lent, make your confession to Jesus, and let His mercy flow over you (and go as soon as you can, whether that’s after Easter or after the pandemic limits have been lifted)

Easter Sunday

  • Participate in a liturgy
  • Sing joyfully to the Lord and praise Him with thanksgiving! Or at least play joyful hymns and songs!
  • Spend time with those you live with
  • Call/Facetime/Skype those you love to share in the joy of the resurrection
  • Have fun with those around you
  • Pray the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary

Have a blessed Holy Week, and don’t forget to let me know if a weeknight or weekend works best for you for a virtual game night!

Pax!

Sarah
