Goal for the Life Night:
The goal for this night is to introduce the theme of the semester on the seven sacraments of the Church. This night will help teens understand why Christ gave us the sacraments and why they are vital to the Christian life. Finally, this night will clarify some of the common misconceptions about the sacraments.
Life Night at a Glance:
This night is an introduction to the semester on the sacraments. This night gives teens a brief overview of what a sacrament is and why each of the seven sacraments is necessary for the Christian life. The night begins with an empty ritual the teens will perform to be fully prepared to enter into the semester. The ritual will lead into a teaching on sacraments in general, the Church as giver and guardian of the sacraments and common misconceptions about the sacraments. Small groups will break open the teaching and lead into the Send. The Send will give the teens an opportunity to commit themselves to Christ, the sacraments and the semester. The night will end with a short time of worship and prayer.
