Children taking part in the Bible trivia at the Church of St Francis of Assisi.

A Bible trivia and book display were organised by the Association of Pauline Cooperators (APC) at the Church of St Francis of Assisi feast day celebration on Oct 1.
The APC, a lay association, together with the Daughters of St Paul, belong to the Pauline Family, founded by Blessed James Alberione to realise his vision of a new evangelisation using the modern tools of social communication.

The Bible trivia and book display are a couple of ways that the APC live the Pauline mission of evangelising through media. The group has also conducted media literacy courses and is a co-organiser of the biennial CANA Film Festival.
