4liters A Life Night About Water Consumption About this Life Night This Life Night has been designed to prepare teenagers for Dig Deep’s 4Liters Challenge. It educates teenagers on the water crisis that the world faces, and the reality of water usage and quality in most parts of the world. It then calls teenagers to respond in prayer and in action, both during the Life Night and by taking the 4Liter challenge sometime in the month after they have attended the Life Night. The Life Night begins with a small group brainstorming session for all of the ways that they use water during the day. The teens will then be further challenged to estimate how many liters of water they use for each of these activities. This provides a transition into the teaching portion of the Life Night, which will educate teenagers on the water crisis and help them understand that our response to this crisis is a requirement of our faith in Christ. Teenagers will then have an opportunity to discuss the teaching and reflect on Sacred Scripture during small group discussion. The Life Night closes with prayers of petition for all those who serve people who live without clean water, and for all those affected by a water crisis. Finally, teenagers are challenged to action through the 4 Liters challenge. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to educate teenagers on the reality of water consumption and cleanliness throughout the world and challenge them to action as a requirement of their Catholic faith.

Nearly 2.5 billion people do not have access to clean sanitation, while 884 million people do not have access to improved sources of drinking water. These two factors contribute to a low quality of life, poor education, and higher raters of death in many parts of the world. As Catholics we are called to solidarity in prayer with those who lack access to clean water, and we are called to ask on their behalf to help them achieve the basic human right to clean water End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
