Goal for the Life Night:
The goal for this night is to celebrate the new life given to us in the Sacrament of Baptism. This night will help the teens understand what happens during Baptism and its effects as well as welcome a newly baptized member of the Church into their community.
Life Night at a Glance:
What a better way to learn about the Sacrament of Baptism than to celebrate the sacrament! This Life Night will allow the teens to learn about the Sacrament of Baptism as it is being celebrated. The night begins in the church or chapel with a time of praise and worship. They youth minister will introduce the family and give a brief explanation on why Baptism is the first of the seven sacraments. The parents of the child will give a brief witness as to why they want to have their child baptized. Their witness will lead directly into the Baptism. As the sacrament is being celebrated, the priest or deacon should explain the elements, words and movements of the sacrament to the teens. The night will end with a celebration of the newest member of the Church.
