Goal of this Life Night:
The goal of this night is to explain that the seven sacraments are not only spiritual but also very physical. These physical elements are called matter and form. The teens will have the opportunity to explore the matter and form of each sacrament and what the significance is for each sacrament.
About this Life Night:
This Life Night will start out by gathering the teens and showing them how certain forms of prayer are appropriate or not appropriate depending on the situation. The Core Team will then present a skit, which demonstrates that God had a very specific “recipe” in mind when he established the sacraments in Scripture. After the skit is further explained the teens will break into groups to learn the specific visible signs that are necessary for each sacrament to be official in the eyes of God and His Church. The Life Night will close with a reflection on the “Our father” and its relationship to the matter and form of the sacraments.
