The goal of this Edge Night is to help the middle school youth understand and encounter the power of the Holy Spirit. The youth will learn that earthly power and strength is fleeting, but the power of the Holy Spirit is eternal.
Edge Night at a Glance
The theme of the Edge Night is the third person of the Holy Trinity: the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit provides the power and strength for us to live the Christian life. It is through the events of Pentecost, when the disciples of Jesus received the Holy Spirit, that the world was transformed and changed forever. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “Through his grace, the Holy Spirit is the first to awaken faith in us and to communicate to us the new life, which is to “know the Father and the one whom he has sent, Jesus Christ” (#684). Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are also called to spread the Gospel in every area of lives – family, community and the world.
