The goal of this night helps the teens understand that the common good of society requires looking outside of their needs and seeing the needs of the larger community.
About this Night:
This Life Night is the last night of the social justice semester. The night seeks to help the teens understand that the common good of society comes from active participation within the community. This night will help the teens look beyond their own needs and wants to the needs and wants of their greater community. The Life Night begins with a quick game challenging the teens to work together to complete a 16-legged race. After the game, the teaching will focus on how being an active member of a community helps promote the common good. After a short time in small groups, the night will close by focusing on the need for the Eucharist to be the source and summit of our service to others. The teens will spend time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament offering their fears and hesitations about becoming a fully active part of the community to the Lord.
