The campus community is invited to watch The Dome for special “Trivia Wednesdays,” which will be published throughout the school year in every Wednesday edition. The first person to respond to with the correct answer will win Canisius “swag.”

Additionally, once a month on Wednesdays, there will be a special giveaway in which the winner will receive some of the newly-designed Canisius sesquicentennial gear.

Winners will be announced the following Wednesday of each week along with the correct trivia answer.

This week’s giveaway question is:

The rose window over the main entrance of Christ the King Chapel features the figure of Christ the King in the center. Twelve petals radiate out from the center. What do they represent?

a) the 12 months of the year

(b) the 12 Apostles

(c) the power and authority of God

(d) Scriptural numeral

This is Barb Irwin’s second win in the Trivia Wednesday contest. The picture above is from her first win, in October 2019.

Congratulations to Barbara Irwin, PhD, professor of communication studies, who was last week’s Trivia Wednesday winner! Barb will receive some Canisius swag once the college returns to normal operations.
