Goal of the Life Night:
To bring the teens to a deeper understanding of the three Sacraments of Initiation and the permanent change affected bythese Sacrament.
Life Night at a Glance:
Teens generally take the Sacraments of Initiation for granted. They are seen as the “hoops” they must jump through in order to become a full member of the Church, as if God’s Family is some type of social club. Not true! The Sacraments of Initiation lay the foundation of our “MERGING” into the Divine Life and into the very Being of God! These are the Big Dogs of all the Sacraments! This Life Night will compare initiation into a country club with initiation into the LIFE of God. The Night starts out with a parody on an initiation process into an elite country club called “Royal Black Hog” or whatever, followed by a fiery talk about the importance of these Sacraments in relationship to our Salvation. The teens will fill out a fake application and questionnaire at the Break portion of the night, and will then receive a membership card at the end of the night.
