SS. Philip and James School in Exton held a Religion Bowl Tuesday, Jan. 29 as part of its Catholic Schools Week activities.
The competition featured six students in each of six grades – third grade versus fourth, fifth versus sixth and seventh versus eighth — answering questions on religion. The groups of contestants used a buzzer to indicate who had the answer first.
The questions, increasing in difficulty as the competition progressed, were asked by Father Joseph Dieckhaus, pastor of SS. Philip and James Parish; Sister Helen Thomas, I.H.M., school principal; and Sister Eunice Marie, I.H.M., director of religious education.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
