Goal of this Life Night
The goal of this Life Night is to introduce the vocation of consecrated life as a person giving up earthly marriage for marriage with God. It will connect this special relationship with the ability to hear God’s voice, and challenge teens to learn from aspects of the consecrated life, especially in the realm of prayer.
About this Life Night
This night should emphasize that when a person discerns entering religious life he or she is not “giving up” marriage. Instead, they are anticipating the elevation of marriage beyond the world, towards its ultimate fulfillment. It is to live, here on earth, in anticipation of our final goal – heaven.
The Life Night begins with a unique drawing challenge between two teens. After, the teaching for night will help the teens understand the vocation of the consecrated life and how those in this state bless the Church. After a time in small groups, the night will close in prayer praying a litany for vocations.
