Goal for the Life Night:
Among teens, Confirmation is more often dreaded than celebrated. The goal for this night is to instill an excitement about the Sacrament of Confirmation. This Life Night will break through the common misconceptions in order to reveal the true nature of Confirmation. This night will also help teens understand the importance and power of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
Life Night at a Glance:
Most teens see the Sacrament of Confirmation as the “graduation” from religious formation and just another sacramental “hoop” they have to jump through. This night begins with a Confirmation competition game between the upperclassmen and the underclassmen. The game will lead into a teaching on the Sacrament of Confirmation and the Holy Spirit. The teens will then break into seven different groups to learn and discuss one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit and how each teen can live out the gift better in his or her life. The night will end with a teen witness and give each teen an opportunity to be prayed over to receive the Holy Spirit in a new way.
