Want to do cover Halloween at youth group? Check out the Edge Night, All Hallows Eve, or the new Life Night, Hallows and Muertos, which also covers El Dia de Los Muertos.

Goal
The goal of this Life Night is to focus the celebration of Halloween and El Día de los Muertos on remembering, celebrating, and interceding for our deceased loved ones and the communion of saints.

Key Concepts
All Saints and All Souls Days are Catholic celebrations in which we pray for and ask for the prayers of our beloved deceased so that all the faithful attain salvation in Christ Jesus.

Satan and demonic influences are real. It is beneficial to be aware of their disguises and reject them.

The enemy has been defeated by Jesus’ definitive victory over evil on the cross.

When people ask where I am from, I respond, "THE WHOLE WORLD!" As a kid we moved around and my Dad raised me knowing that "the world is my backyard." I have now put down roots in Phoenix and serve as the Coordinator of Diocesan Collaborations and Curriculum Support at Life Teen, but I still enjoy traveling for business and leisure across the globe. I am delighted to combine my passion for travel, mission, and people with my youth ministry expertise to help parishes and diocese lead teens closer to Christ. When not at work you can find me lifting weight at Crossfit, up a mountain, or under the sea with my friends and family.
