Staff-currated Semester Options
To help you create unique semesters unitilizing Life Nights from different shipments, we've created three options for you to use if you need some help crafting a semester. Use these outlines a suggestion. Supplement as needed by looking at the USCCB semester outline to fill in gaps for your youth group.
We suggest that you build unique semesters based on the USCCB requirements that help your teens understand the Faith. Don't feel compelled to use every night, but pick and choose what fits your group.

You can find more details about the USCCB catechesis framework in this PDF.

IV. Jesus Christ teaches us about ourselves
- Jesus embodies what has been revealed in and through creation
- Jesus Christ redeems us and gives us his grace so that we can choose the good according to God’s will and resist sin and it’s effects
- Jesus Christ reveals the Father to us, who we are, and our call to holiness
- Jesus also tells us of the goal in this life and of the end of life
- How can we know God really exists?
- There are some who see human suffering and conclude that God does not care about us. Why do we say that he loves us deeply?
- How can people say that God is good if suffering and evil are present in the world?
- Does God really want us to be happy?
- There are some who dismiss God’s Revelation and say that the beliefs and doctrines taught by the Church have been made up by members of the Church. How can we be sure that what the Catholic Church teaches has come from God?
