The goal of this night is to explore the connection between the Church’s social justice teaching and government policy and laws. In particular, this night will explore some of the current events (such as Immigration) and how the teens can get involved on a larger scale.
About this Night:
This night will require very careful and non-bias preparation on behalf of the youth minister and the Core Team. It is essential to point out that the Church does not endorse any political party but rather tries to help any and every government focus on the common good of all citizens. Christ makes it abundantly clear that proper government is necessary to enhance the development of every human person. A government who takes care of its citizens can enhance the recognition of the dignity of the human person.
The Life Night begins with a take off of the classic game “Simon Says.” After the game, the teaching for the night will help the teens understand how governments should always work to promote the common good of the society. During the Break, the teens will discuss different local laws and how they affect the community. The night closes by praying for current, local government officials.
