Not Alone An Edge Night on Loneliness and Depression Summary The Edge Night begins with an intense group activity where the youth will be able to see that they are not alone in their suffering and struggles. The Proclaim discusses the reality of suffering, the signs of depression, how to get help, as well as the opportunity we have as Catholics to unite our suffering with Christ. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to discuss the topic and then to partake in the Veneration of the Cross and bring all their suffering to Jesus. The Send celebrates Jesus overcoming sin, suffering, and Death in His Resurrection and the Edge Night ends with an ice cream social. Goal of This Night For the youth to come to know that in the midst of loneliness and depression they are not alone and that there is a God and a community that loves and cares about them. Pastoral Note: There may be youth who struggle with clinical depression, be aware of these youth and also prepare your Core Members to notice any body language or trigger signs of youth who struggle with depression. Also, be prepared with proper steps if any youth reveal harmful behavior such as abuse, self harm, or thoughts of suicide.
