Belong A Life Night on the Sacraments of Initiation This Life Night begins by making t-shirts that represent the community to which we belong. The Proclaim discusses the Sacraments of Initiation and how we are welcomed into the Catholic community and God’s family through them. The Break is a small group discussion that takes place in various locations inside the church: the Baptismal Font, the Oils of Catechumen, and the Tabernacle. The Send is a period of Adoration and an opportunity to receive the light and love of Jesus in the Eucharist, who is the source and summit of our Catholic community. Goal of This Night The goal for this Life Night is for the teens to recognize how Christ is present to their need for community and how they are welcomed into the family of God, the Church, through the Sacraments of Initiation.
