Totally Given Sacraments at the Service of Communion About this Life Night This Life Night begins with a modified game of dodge ball that challenges teenagers to protect each other from being tagged out of the game.

A man and woman that receive the Sacrament of Matrimony build up the Church by raising a family that is faithful to Church teaching.
