Grace Infusion The Sacraments and Grace About this Life Night This Life Night begins a semester about the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church. As teens gather, they are divided into small groups and are challenged to complete a “sacramental scavenger hunt.” After the winners are awarded prizes, teenagers hear a teaching that provides an overview of the sacraments and grace. During the Break, teenagers reflect on the ways they experience God’s grace through both the sacraments and through everyday occurrences. They discuss their reflections during a small group discussion before transitioning into a closing prayer. Teenagers are invited to offer up any areas of weakness in their lives to Christ by praying before a cross. Goal of This Night This Life Night provides an introduction to grace and the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church. It challenges teenagers to be sustained by the sacraments of the Church and to constantly seek God’s grace in all aspects of their lives.

They draw us into the relationship of the Trinity. Grace is free and undeserved help from God; grace makes us “partakers of the divine nature” of God. Grace is the communication of God’s life to us. There are seven Sacraments that were instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church; they are Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Holy Orders, Matrimony, Anointing of the Sick, and Reconciliation.
