Goal of this Life Night
The goal for this Life Night is to help teens understand that a vocation is different from a job or a career; it is a specific and unique call from God that is to be lived out. This night will offer examples of each of the four traditionally recognized vocations: marriage, committed single life, consecrated life, and ordained.
About this Life Night
making choices is part of everyday life. Outfits are chosen, jobs are chosen, friends are chosen, but to be called to something is different. God provides all of us with gifts that will help in living out a specific call or vocation. This night will help teens explore the different vocations they might be called to. The night begins with Core members trying to “recruit” teens for the four different vocations as they gather for the night. After this “recruitment session” the youth minister will ask the teens why they chose the vocation they did and then will transition into the Proclaim. during the Break, the teens will be given a survey that will help them examine the importance of discovering God’s call in their own life. After the teens have had a few minutes to complete the surveys, they will break into small groups to discuss their answers. The night will conclude by having a time of Adoration, because it is through prayer and a relationship with God that our vocation will be revealed.
