Goal for the Life Night:
The goal of this night is for teens to understand the role of the saints and martyrs as holy examples of living and powerful intercessors. This night will help them to understand why suffering, sacrifice, and even death is an important part of the lives of the saints. Finally, this night will show how each teen is called to sainthood.
Life Night at a Glance:
Based on the popular TV show “Heroes”, this night looks at how the heroes of our faith, the saints and martyrs, are ordinary people who have accepted the extraordinary call of following Christ. The night begins with crazy improv skits performed by the teens. The teaching will show how the witness of the saints and martyrs shows us what true heroism looks like. After the teaching, the teens will get the opportunity to choose a saint they want to learn more about. Finally, the night ends by reminding the teens that sainthood is what they are called to right now.
