WEEEEEEK SEVEEEEEN!!!

This weeks meeting was lead by our very own President Clara Paik. We had no icebreaker this week, and went straight into Clara’s talk about Lent, why we do it and what it is. After her talk we had another opportunity to meditate to praises’ beautiful music. We ended the night with a movie, John Q.

WEEK 6!!!

This weeks meeting was was led by GOOD FAMILY’s very own Erica Lee and Alex Kim. They gave their insights on hope and what hope means to them. First we started off with the Human Knot icebreaker, and we slowed it down with Erica and Alex’s talks. After the talks we had a quiet praise so that everyone could meditate. The meeting was a quiet and beautiful meeting, and the night ended with everyone playing Sardines in UTC!

WEEK 5!!!

First off I want to apologize for slacking so much… feel free to nag me for not updating this…. Well anyway last week, week 5 we had our annual VALENTINES DAY DINNER!!! The theme was Moulin Rouge, semi-formal, red, white, or black. It was a night filled with GREAT food and GREAT entertainment. The ladies cooked up a delicious feast and the guys FEASTED! In return for the girls hard work the guys put in their own hard work with the entertainment. The night’s entertainment started with Alex, Sean, and Justin with their cover of Loud Love by Good Old War. These guys sang their hearts out for the girls! Next we had another live performance by our very own Philip, Brian, and Vincent with their songs I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz and the Mario Kart Song on Youtube. The ladies just loved this trio. The Trio was followed by Kevin and Alex’s spoken word, how sophisticated! Then Alex and Vincent performed a Saxophone, Piano duet of Your Song, Ewan McGregor’s rendtion of it. After that Vincent performed a vocal solo while playing the piano, sorry I can’t remember what song you did. The last live performance of the night was our very own Jason with his operatic singing. After all the live entertainment two groups of guys prepared some videos. Alan, Eric, Fabio, Andy, Kevin, and Clara performed Big Bang’s Haru Haru. After that CWA, Alex, Fabio, Kevin, Andy, Justin, Sean, Vincent, Philip, and Brian performed an original.

WEEK 6.

HERRO DER FELLOW KYRIANS 🙂

This is Michelle Paek writing for Alex again. Hope you guys are having a wooonderful week! 🙂

SOOOOO…. Alex started off our General Meeting with a wonderful opening prayer. Then we went to our icebreaker–the BALLOON POPPING GAME! hehe. t’was very fun huh? Some of the ballons were HARD to pop! (I was bouncing on Erica Lee’s until I realized mine was gone… haha) In the end, it was brother against sister, as Jessica and Richard battled it out… and the older Kim won! Congrats Richard! YAY RICHARD 🙂

Next, Clara gave us a talk on Relationships–relationships with God, our family and friends, and our special someones. Jason also gave us a BEAAAUTIFUL  talk! 🙂 THANK YOU SO MUCH JASON! 🙂

And theeeen, we went back into our small groups, and some SPECIAL GUESTS joined in! Jason led the 3rd years+ group, Daniel (LAST YEARS PRESIDENT! AH YAY!) led the 2nd years, and our lovely president Clara led the Freshmen Cuties! This was the first small group activity the Cuties had without me, Alex, and Jessica. AWW OUR BABIES ARE GROWING UP! :’/

Then, we had praise and Our Father, followed by a closing prayer by Linda!

Our After-event was RUNNING MAN (based on the Korean game show)! We split up into 4 teams. In our teams, we did “rock-paper-scissors” to see who would be the “boss” for our team. Then we all dispersed throughout Ring Road and Aldrich Park, and the race was on to hunt down the other teams’ bosses. We could get a person on another team out by taking off the tape that we all had on our backs.  The bosses were Philip (YAY MY TEAM!), Eunji (this girl hid for an hour and a half BY HERSELF. she will never lose. EVER. too bad she didn’t win either. hehe..), and.. two other.. hehe sorry I don’t really remember right now… BUT GOOD JOB EVERYONE! It ended up being a FOUR WAY TIE! YAY WE’RE ALL WINNERS! 🙂

ALREADY WEEK FIVE O_____________O

Wow I can’t believe it’s already week 5… what is this ridiculousness??? This past week we had a very down to earth meeting. We had a wonderful opening prayer by the best, 🙂 Michelle Paek. After the beautiful opening prayer we played Electricity! It was an intense game of running and squeezing hands! There were some crazy races!

After some electric running we split into our small groups and talked about our love languages, I don’t know about you guys but I found it pretty interesting to learn about how I love and how I like to be love.  It was interesting learning about the 5 different love languages, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch. To end the night we had a lovely closing prayer by our very own Eunji Koo. For our after event we all headed out to Suicide Hill so that we could all bond with our brothers and sisters while enjoying the great view.

FABULOUS WEEK FOUR!! (and BROOMBALL and NEWCOMERS OUTING!)

HERROOOOO 🙂

This is Michelle Paek, writing for Alex 🙂 I don’t know if you guys pay attention to his blogs, but since its me this time, READ EET ALL. TEEHEE 🙂 (jk you should always read his too).

For our Week 4 General Meeting, Justin Lee opened us in prayer. Our icebreaker this week was…. TELEPHONE CHARADES! It was a lot of fun, huh? The category was movies, and each group had to act out their movie “Telephone” style. The first group that went successfully guessed their movie–SIXTH SENSE! Then from there…. people kinda failed…. How to Train Your Dragon, Harry Potter 7 Part 2, and Avatar… but it was still pretty funny to watch!

Then, we all got into a BIG circle to pray the Rosary together. It was very beautiful seeing us all pray together 🙂 Oh, now that you all know how to pray the Rosary… guess what you can do??? YOU CAN COME OUT TO R3AP!! Remember R3AP? The thing we always announce and I write about in my emails? Come pray the Rosary with us! Rosary 3pm at Aldrich Park! (near the statues of the Chinese poets and goddess, near the Humanities bridge! just contact me or any of the other staff if you’re not sure where it is at!) YAY R3AP!  Okay, and after praying the Rosary together, we got into our Small Faith Communities/Small Groups.  For fall quarter, our small groups would be with our years! The Freshman small group is led by Welcoming Committee—Michelle Paek, Alex and Jessica! YAY FRESHMEN! 🙂 Second years are with second years, and third years and up are together in one jumbo lovely group! 🙂 In our groups, we went over the readings for the upcoming Sunday. It was really nice to discuss the readings and Gospel since a lot of times, we don’t take the time to think about them as much.

We then ended the meeting with praise, which consisted of nice slow songs this week. And finally, Erica Lee ended us with a closing prayer as we did the Our Father, the prayer we know best!

FINALLY, our After-event was CAMINO DEL SOL. We reserved a study room for those of us who still had a bunch of midterms. While the rest of us went to the game room to play pool, air hockey, and play 🙂

=BROOMBALL!!!=

Last Friday, was our Inter-Kyrie Broomball event!! YAYAYAY! We had a fun night of fellowship with UCLA, UCSD, and UCR Kyries. Thank you to those of you that attended! Everyone looked all cutes, all dressed up to our theme, High School Stereotypes. I think best dressed goes to–Michelle Song and Erika Lopez…. DID YOU SEE THEM?? Best cholas ever.  Msong looked like an Asian Amy Winehouse and Erika…. if you didn’t meet her before you probably didn’t go up to her that night cause she was very intimidating and into character. TEEHEE CUTIES ❤  And hope you guys enjoyed our Staff performance…. hope no one was watching me… it’s a lot harder on ice… Also, hope no one hurt themselves or fell too much on the ice… or froze.. TWAS VERY COLD! I saw some people in shorts… not very smart. I wore 1 long sleeve, 1 shirt, 3 jackets, and a blanket… and I was still freezing…

=NEWCOMERS OUTING=

Our Newcomer’s/Freshmen Outing was this past Sunday, led by Welcoming Committee! The Outing was actually…. INITIATION! HEHE. We told you guys to be ready by 8… but picked up was at 6:00 AM!! WOOHOOOOOO! 🙂 That was pretty fun… In my car, Joyce was the only one awake, Sunny fell asleep “holding a cup” (so cutes), and Peter told Joyce and Sunny to go sit in the front seat so that he can lay down in the back by himself…. We then went to the beach and played fun games and had a talk in our groups before heading back to VDC for breakfast! Yummy fried rice was made by Fabio, Karen, and Michelle Song (and her sister!). THANK YOU GUYS! 🙂 Then most of us went to noon Interfaith mass together.  YAY! Thanks for those of you who attended! (Joyce, Sunny, Peter, Margaret, Vincent, Philip, Richard, Jiwon, and Woo Jin!)

What a looong weekend! Okiees, hope you guys are having a greaaat week 🙂 and good luck to those who are still having midterms! SEE YOU THURSDAY!

WHEEEE MEETING THREE!!!

This weeks meeting began with a beautiful opening prayer by Michelle Song, and Praise kicked it off with “Take It All”, “Your Grace is Enough”, and “Trading My Sorrows.” Clara gave another short talk about our Saint for the day, St. Francis of Assisi. This week our meeting went a little differently than usual instead of having our usual set of ice breakers we broke off into groups so we could prepare skits to showcase the creativity and acting talents of the Kyrie members. Groups were given parables from the bible and random genres of movies and with what was given they had to prepare a skit. Parables included “Ruth and Naomi”, “David and Jonathan”, “Prodigal Son”, “Abraham”, and “Good Samaritan”. The genres were Korean Drama, horror, silent film, romance, and musical. Everyone had their own interesting renditions of the story and most skits just ended up being funny. The staff also prepared their own skit around the verse Luke 6:27-36. VIDEOS OF THESE SKITS WILL BE UPLOADED SOON!!! STAY TUNED!!! After skits we finished with a closing prayer by Karen Huynh. This weeks awesome after event was, NRB!!!!!!! (karaoke)
