Goal for the Life Night:
The goal is to show the teens the responsibility we have as followers of Christ for the care, protection and responsible use of our hearts, the earth and its resources.
Life Night at a Glance:
We all have taken the Earth for granted from time to time. Many teenagers do not see the Earth as a gift from God. This night begins with a fun game that helps them realize what is good or bad for recycling. The teenagers will then have time to read and reflect on what the Scriptures and the Catechism says about being stewards of the earth. The break will allow each teenager to estimate his/her ecological footprint, which estimates how many planets we would need if everyone consumed as we do. Lastly the teenagers will brainstorm different ways in which they can become better stewards of the earth.
