It was an uncharacteristically hot Saturday morning in September this past weekend. But, despite the searing sun and the early hours of the day, the St. Patrick-St. Vincent High School campus in Vallejo, Calif. (my alma mater!) teemed with young adults wearing brightly colored shirts and waving homemade banners to kick-off the 2013 Koinonia Cup.
"K Cup" is an all-day fellowship event organized by and for Catholic young adult ministries in the Sacramento diocese. Throughout the day, different young adult groups participated in a series of friendly competitive games, and a team was ultimately crowned as the K Cup champion.
It was a fast-paced day, filled with local vendors, praise and worship, and a lot of laughs. The heat became a bit unbearable at times, but — with my fiancée Sarina as my second shooter and quite a few familiar faces around me — I definitely think it was a day well-spent. The ice-cold boba drinks definitely helped, too!
