A Legacy An Edge Night on the Last Things The Edge Night begins with a Gather activity where the youth create a story, and then it is acted out by their Core Members. The Proclaim discusses what happens after we die, particularly what are heaven, hell, and Purgatory. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to learn about the life of a saint and discuss the qualities that saint showed that helped lead him or her to heaven. During the Send the youth have an opportunity to pray for people they know who have died and also learn a traditional prayer of the Church for souls in Purgatory. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is for the youth to come to a greater understanding of what happens when we die and how the lives we live now affect what happens after we die. Catechism # 1001 - 1014 # 1021 - 1032 # 1680 - 1690 # 1855 - 1857 Scripture Luke 12:30 -31 Luke 17:33 John 14:6 Key Concepts – Death is a reality of life. We will all die at some point in time, and none of us know when that will be. Death is the end of our earthly life — it is a natural event, but it is also the consequence of sin. (CCC 1001-1008) – At the moment of our death we will be judged by all the actions of our life, this is called particular judgment, and we will go either to heaven, hell, or Purgatory. (CCC 1021-1022) – We, in the Church, are also given every advantage to help us to get to heaven; through the sacraments we have all the grace we need to live a life with Christ now and to choose Him in this life.
