SINGAPORE – St. Joseph’s Institution won the 2008 Archbishop Nicholas Chia Inter-Catholic School Bible Knowledge
Quiz. CHIJ Toa Payoh came in second and St. Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School third.
Eleven teams from seven schools took part in the quiz which was based on St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians. Pope Benedict XVI has declared 2008 to be the year of St. Paul. This Letter was chosen also because the early church in Corinth grew in circumstances similar to that of Singapore. The early Christian community there also had to grapple with many social issues – unity, morality and liturgical practices – that still challenge the church today.
