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.
