Fr Joys first visit

Today I met Father Joy from Holy Name of Jesus. He is our new priest from India. Father Joy was born in Kerala India and wanted to be a priest when he was older, Kerala spreads over 38 683km2 and has 34.8 million people. Father Joy came from India and worked at St. Theresa, Edmonton, and St. Thomas More Catholic Parish Church before he came to Vermilion and is currently working at Holy Name of Jesus Church. Father Joy had also talked about the languages of India, the language in his Provence was Malayalam. In India the main Language is Hindi.  Father Joy had a sister and a couple brothers but he mostly talked about his sister not his brothers, his sister is a nun which had inspired him to become a priest.

Father Joy also talked about the religions in India there is a lot of them like Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, and others. Also, Father Joy talked about and said that Thomas the Apostle traveled to Tamilakam which is in the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Father Joy said that their temperatures range from 22 degrees to 25 degrees Celcius.

This is a picture of India the place where Father Joy was born and in the left corner is his home Province Kerala.



Today I did a survey in my blueprint about Motivations. The results after the survey said my top motivation factor is an achievement. Achievement is something that has been accomplished, achieved through effort, or the result of hard work. An example of this is if you are in a race for track and field and your achievement is to come in first then you need to put in some work and practice to get first and you will accomplish that achievement.

Achievement also means successful completion; accomplishment. So by this, that means if you study hard for something like a test and you want to be successful by getting 80s or 90s you have to study to accomplish that goal. A person whos motivation is achievements they look for ways to feel like they’ve done something. Achievers are motivated to fully engage the use of their unique skills, knowledge, and abilities to create a feeling of accomplishment.

In the survey, they had in the results a secondary motivation and mine was Independence. Independence means not controlled or influenced by opines, decisions, and conduct, etc. so an example of that is in school and you are doing a science project and you want to be by yourself because u have your own ideas about the project and you wanna work by yourself that is an example about being independent.

My Knowledge

In my Blueprint, after I did the survey on Knowledge, it showed me what my top subject area is and it is Physical Education then the second was Creative Arts and the third one was Science. Physical education courses help you understand and appreciate a healthy and active lifestyle. Topics may include Sports, Wellness, and Health Sciences. My second subject that the results said was Creative Arts. Art courses help you develop artistic abilities, techniques, and practice. Topics may include Visual Arts, Music, Dramatic Arts. The third subject it said was Science. Science courses help you develop your understanding of basic scientific concepts and how they relate to other parts of your life. Topics may include Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.

In my design on Canva of my Knowledge, I put Physical Education and on the picture that I was designing on it I put a picture of a running shoe because running and exercising is a way to stay healthy. Aso on the picture I put one picture of a water bottle because in order to stay hydrated when exercising and staying healthy drinking water is healthy for you and the best fluids to drink when staying healthy.  I also put a picture of weight on my Canva because if you are staying fit and healthy building your muscles and staying strong is a good and important thing to.

After the survey, the results said, I’m the specialist (CR). The (CR) beside the specialist stands for conventional, realistic. Conventional means they focus on information and the tools required to analyze, organize, and understand information. They also include activities such as creating plans, processes, and routines.  Realistic, means realistic occupations involve practical, hands-on activities. They focus on working with plants, animals, materials, tools, and, machines. Some of these both Realistic and Conventional things describe me but some of them don’t.

On my canvas poster, I put pictures that interest me and those are Hockey, Quading, and Fishing there are more but those are the ones I put on the poster. I put Hockey on because I have been playing hockey for a long time and I really love the sport. I also put Fishing because I love Fishing it is like one of my favorite things to do in the summer. I put a picture of a Quad on there as well because I love Quading and just driving the Quad.


The 10th Commandment

The 10th Commandment: “you shall not covet” which means that anything that is your neighbors you shall not desire for or greed for.  God wants us to help “the poor” and the “poor in spirit”.  Matthew 5:3-10 and Luke 6:20-26 say this saying in both of these passages about helping “the poor” and the “poor in spirit” which means we must be humble in our spirits. An example of a “good desires” would be wanting to help or to give back like if you are going through your clothes in your closet and you come across a lot of clothes that you don’t wear anymore giving them to people that can’t afford new clothes.  Our school can help by like having food drives to help the poor with having food. Our community can hold suppers for the poor to help feed. The province can help and give clothes that people in the provence don’t use to people that need. The country can also help donate more things like money and other stuff to.


In the survey results, there are types of sides like energy, information gathering, decision making, and lifestyle and structure. In the survey it made me answer some questions about my personality and things. After you are finished the survay they have a part where you can view your results about what kind of personality you have. How that works is there is on one side like as an example for the Energy one there is on one side Extraversion and on the other side, Intraversion and the one you are the circle on the slider will be closer to one of them to names. There is 4 categories.


My Learning Styles

There are 3 types of learning styles which are Visual, Kinesthetic, and Auditory.

I am mostly from the survey a Visual learner. A Visual learner is someone that learns from looking and seeing, which I do and I also learn from hands-on thinks like writing out study note in flashcards. A person also likes to take numerous detailed notes. A visual learner also tends to sit in the front and often closes their eyes to help visualize or remember something. They also benefit from illustrations and presentations that use color. I am also a Kinesthetic learner to because when I study for tests I like to use flashcards and write the stuff on there. I also like to take breaks when I am studing.

Study Tips they use are:

  • Underline and highlight key ideas in their notes.
  • They use graphic organizers ex, Mind map, Venn diagram, web.
  • Pause and try to create a mental image in their mind, or they draw a visual representation.
  • Turns concepts into charts and diagrams
