Goal for the Life Night:
The goal for the night is to help the teens understand how the season of Lent calls us out of the garden and into the desert with Christ for a time of preparation and purification. This night will also help the teens experience through the five senses the changes that happen during Lent within the Church.
Life Night at a Glance:
This night is a good way to help the teens understand why our Church has this season called Lent. The night begins by breaking the teens up into small groups to make 30-second commercials advertising Lent. The commercials lead into a teaching on our call to desert spirituality specifically during the season of Lent. The teens will break back into small groups to discuss their own Lenten journey. The teens will gather back together in the Church that is set with the Lenten decorations for a reflection using the five senses on the changes and themes in our Church during the season of Lent. The night will end with prayer and giving teens a vial of sand to remind them what the season of Lent means for their lives.
