Call Me Mom
Mary, Mother of God
Life Night Outline
Goal of this Night
The goal of the Life Night is to help the teens see Mary as a living witness of humility and faith. They will also understand Mary’s role in the Church and how she can be our spiritual mother.
About this night
Mary, the Mother of God, is our mother. She is a gift to all and a perfect witness of discipleship and faith. This Life Night will help the teens understand Mary’s role in our faith and in their lives. The Life Night begins with a competition to match the Core Member to their nicknames. The teaching for the night will focus on Mary as Mother of God and a perfect witness of faith. After, the teens will gather in small groups to learn about a few of Mary’s titles and discuss question on how she can be a mother to everyone. The night will end with a time of prayer by using the Litany of Mary.
This week we are getting to know our Mom — Mary, Mother of God. The night looks at how Mary is a gift to us from Jesus and how we have the honor to call her mother. Spend a few minutes this week discussing Mary with your teen. If possible, pray a rosary as a family. Here are a few possible questions:
1. What does a mother do?
2. How is Mary your mother?
3. What can we as a family do to invite Mary into our home and hearts?
The environment for this night should be simple and elegant, like in an art gallery. Place five or six pictures of Mary around the room. Each picture should represent different titles of Mary (for example — Mother of God, Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Perpetual Help). Print and frame each picture large enough for the teens to see. Between the pictures, place roses and candles to add to the elegance of the space. In the front of the room, have a cross with a blue cloth draped around the middle.
