The goal of this Life Night is to break open the life of St. Patrick and help the teens better understand their journey to sainthood specifically through the need for a prayer life and trust in god’s will.
About this Night
We have so many examples and witnesses of faith. The Communion of Saints is made up of men and woman who have endured both trial and joy. One of those saints is St. Patrick. St. Patrick’s witness of faith challenges us to strengthen our prayer life and surrender to god’s plan for our life. This Life Night breaks open the life of St. Patrick and how his example can help on the journey to sainthood. The night begins with a four-leaf clover scavenger hunt and moves into a short teaching on who St. Patrick is and what we can learn from him. After, the teens will have an opportunity to meet in small groups and discuss their call to missionary life. The night ends with a time of individual prayer reflecting on “St. Patrick’s Breast-Plate Prayer.”
